A free family event with something for everyone!
Sixty years ago Bewdley was the centre for a flourishing cherry trade and with a 200 year tradition of an annual Cherry Fair since at least 1817. So we hope that people may learn of former times and support our effort to rescue the different varieties of cherry. The event is a joint event with the Civic Society telling visitors the history of the cherry orchards in Bewdley. Read historical notes for the Cherry Fair courtesy of Bewdley Civic Society.
Throughout the weekend:
22 July 2pm and 3.15pm
Dancefest's Chance to Dance Company, with Rock and Areley Kings Chance to Dance group (funded by Wyre Forest District Council) present 'Land Army', a dance that explores long hours toiling on the land, the firm friendships that were forged and the sense of hope and celebration brought by VE day.
Dancefest uses the power and joy of dancing to enhance people's lives, enabling everyone to take park in, be inspired by, and express themselves through dance. Dance classes run weekly for all ages across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, including Chance to Dance classes for people aged 40 and over.
