28 – 30 May 2011 @ Caldmore Village Festival
Caldmore is an area of Walsall with its own unique heritage. Over the May bank holiday weekend Caldmore Village Festival will be celebrating the multi-cultural diversity of Caldmore and its people using song and dance. Last year’s event was a big success and 2011 will be even bigger and better!
This year we are creating a combined performance of more than a hundred voices drawing on people from local choirs. If you are members of a choir and would like to get involved then we would like to hear from you. The organisers will be looking to build a performance around gospel music, you would need to have basic knowledge of performance and be available to rehearse during evenings leading up to the festival. The performance will be staged early evening on Sunday 29th May.
To register interest or to get further information please contact Eric telephone 07903 403057 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What an absolutely cracking launch to this year’s Caldmore Village Festival. The Bath Street Centre hosted our launch party to a ram-packed sell out crowd – next year we may have to sell ‘standing only’ tickets!!!
The evening kicked off with the traditional ‘loading of the plates’ buffest style followed by a fantastic performance by Caldmores own Bath Street Band. The rest of the evening continued onwards and upwards with further outstanding musical performances by Malik Raof and Malik Razak, Dean Janjua, and Snooty Bobs. With dancing from S and J Stars Dance school and stand up from Dave Shakespeare plus more ‘loading of the plates’ the evening proved to be a feast for the senses.
What a fantastic atmosphere – and a fantastic start to the year!

St Matthew’s has a 12 bell quarter peel to be rung by visitors from York Minster. They will be starting from 9.30 am Sat morning and ringing to about 11 am.
Bank Holiday Monday -
A band from Alrewas will be ringing an 8 bell quarter peel at St Matthew’s on Bank holiday Monday.
Tower Captain, John Edlin says:
Bellringing is a great English tradition and St Matthew’s is looking to recruit new ringers. Men and women are equally suitable. It’s an absorbing hobby which brings people together and automatically leads to making friends across the country, and indeed, the world. Anyone interested should contact the Tower Captain, John Edlin. 01922 626520.
Details of St Matthew’s Church can be found on the website. www.stmatthewswalsall.co.uk. A quick look at the calendar will illustrate how many community events take place in and around St Matthew’s. http://www.localendar.com/public/ColinGibson.

The Festival Events Committee is reorganising the second ‘A Taste of Caldmore’ event with a jazz ensemble playing sometime in March. This top notch band, from the organiser of the Upton-on-Severn Jazz Festival, will be playing in our newest local restaurant - back from the flood!
This is a larger venue and as the last ‘A Taste of Caldmore’ event was fully booked, yet postponed, we are expecting to sell this one out very quickly too.
Dates to be confirmed – Watch This Space!
