In Full . . .

Enjoy the big picnic

For the first September in ten years there is no Alvechurch Alight! – but there is still the chance for a community get-together on the weekend usually reserved for the village’s big festival.

Picnic on the Pitch is being held at Alvechurch Cricket Club on September 23 offering an afternoon and early evening of music and family fun.

Entertainment will be provided by The Big Swing and several other bands, with music ranging from blues, rock, folk and soul to a little classical.

The event runs from midday until 8pm and organisers hope people will bring a picnic and make a day of it. The bar will be open throughout, while cream teas and a pig roast will also be available. Side shows include a bouncy castle, flower stall and face painting.

All profits will go to the Make a Wish Foundation. Donations are subject to a minimum of £1 per person – under-10s may attend for free.
