Celebrating amazing kick-off of the festival with bright sunshine and more than 4000 people.
It was a stunning array of acts from Afghan dancing to glam rock, arts and carnival workshops for all the family, setting the scene for another great day TODAY!
The sun is shining and the day looks absolutely fantastic for the Festival today!
Don’t forget that the entertainment continues into the night with Ben Gunn at The Wheatsheaf tonight playing their infectious mix of swamp blues and Mr George and His Famous Last Words continuing after his performance on CVF’s main stage today with a gig at The White Lion on Sunday night!
Signature Marquees and Robannas have been on site today getting our stage and marquees ready!
We’ll see you tomorrow for the kick-off at 12pm!

Volunteers needed at a 3 day festival spectacular in Palfrey Park,Walsall.
It’s that time of the year again & planning for this year’s brilliant Caldmore Village Festival & The Walsall Mela is in full swing. The amazing Caldmore Village Festival & the fantastic Walsall Mela are in their fourth year & getting bigger every year. Do you want to be part of the festival/mela organising team, would you like to meet some of the stars?
We need volunteers to work in shifts for over the 3 day period of the festival, we will provide refreshments and a brilliant playful atmosphere, we need helpful volunteers to monitor the site and make sure all who attend have the best time!
Jobs include general park and car park stewards, Kids entertainment stewards, Information stewards, Noise patrol stewards, festival stewards, gate stewards and litter pickers, 5-a-side football stewards.
Last year we had over 100 volunteers who had a great time enjoying the festivities at our festival & mela, many bands and choirs, children, athletes and also local dancers took part, we had over 20,000 visitors. It was a multicultural splash!
This year the fantastic Walsall Mela will take place at Palfrey Park again with the amazing turnout last year, we need volunteers to help with most of the above duties listed. Kabbadi, Stonelifting and volleyball as well as young people’s sports tasters will be some of the sports seen. The Walsall Mela will be held on the 7thof July this year.
