Another fantastic event brought to you by Stirchley, the Way Forward (not for profit).
Once again the weather was so kind to us! A beautiful sunny Saturday at Stirchley Baths.
The fete opened with Explore Learning taking to the stage with a show designed to ignite curiosity and learning for children and their families.
We were then treated to the musical talents of Birmingham Rock School. Who once again delighted us with their enthusiasm.
Fitness and dance were brought to us by Carola from Swing train and Sharon from So funk, no idea where their energy comes from.
The Razamatazz magic show was a hit and it was a treat for us to see the happy faces of the children and adults especially when the magical rabbit appeared. How did he do that?
A true party atmosphere was complimented with music by Marcel from Emortal Records whom supplied the music for the event.
Outside in the toddler area we had some very entertaining tales and fantastic stories from Story Vibes.
This year we had the very popular Party Bus. Great fun and entertainment for the kiddies. All the children loved it.
Attic Brew, their first experience away from their venue in Maryvale Rd. Brought us tasty beer to the event.
We were also honoured by the appearance of ‘Myrtle the Turtle’ and thank you Louise for giving Stirchley the opportunity of displaying the gold medal recently awarded to Birmingham City Council at Chelsea Flower Show.
We would like to thank stallholders and everyone who came along and took part. We would like to take this opportunity of thanking our local MP Steve McCabe who took time out from his busy schedule to pay us a visit too.
We would also like to thank the staff of Stirchley Baths and our volunteers who helped us put on such a successful event. Without them we couldn’t bring our community together!
We welcomed many visitors and it was truly wonderful to see such contented faces.
Until the next time!
Thank you and best wishes to you all.
Sue, Lisa, Martin, Stu and Susan.
