Sun set to scorch for big Black Country Weekender

Glorious sunshine is forecast as thousands are set to descend on Himley Hall for two days of music, comedy and family fun this weekend.

Tickets are still available for the big Black Country Weekender in the grounds of the historic stately home, as forecasters predict temperatures could top 30C.

The weekend double header on Saturday (July 16) and Sunday (July 17) is the centrepiece of this year’s Black Country Festival and a great opportunity to celebrate who we are and where we come from. Saturday will see a 20-piece orchestra, vocalists and guest DJs including Stuart Ojelay bring a slice of Ibiza to the Black Country, with a Proms In The Park event running from 3pm to 9pm.

And on Sunday, 80s stars Go West, The Fizz and Roland Gift from the Fine Young Cannibals headline the main stage at the Black Country Musicom.

They will be joined by a number of top tribute acts to legends including Bon Jovi, Elvis, Take That, George Michael and Dua Lipa.

There will also be a comedy tent, stalls, funfair and street entertainers at the event, which runs from noon to 8pm and will feature something for all ages as a great family day out.


Councillor Sue Greenaway, the Mayor of Dudley, said:

"The Musicom has been a fantastic event in the previous two years we have run it and really well received by all who went. For that reason we’ve decided to try and go bigger and better this year to make it a whole weekend of bostin’ fun as part of the Black Country Festival. Both days will be fantastic, and the weather forecast is glorious, so I’d urge people to get their tickets booked online to get the best price."

Tickets for Ibiza Proms In The Park on Saturday July 16 are £27 for adults and £12 for children aged five to 17, with under 5s going free.

Tickets for Musicom 2022 on Sunday July 17 are £14 for adults and £8 for children. Booking fees will be added to all prices.


Special VIP tickets are available on both days with free food and drink and more.
