A big thank you from the Bournville Village Festival organisers

The Bournville Village Council would like to thank everyone, especially all of our volunteers, who helped make this year's Bournville Village Festival so enjoyable. It was a wonderful day, rewarded with large crowds basking in the good weather.

Many visitors considered the Maypole dancing, by all of the children, to be the highlight of the day. A special thank you to Sue and Olivia Walsh, the maypole teachers, for all of the months of hard work needed to make such a marvellous spectacle so successful on the day.

We look forward to seeing you all again at the 2018 Bournville Village Festival.

Could you be a Maypole Dancer?

The Bournville Village Festival on the 24th June, requires a great many children to be maypole dancers. Could you be one of them?

The Bournville Village Council organise the annual Bournville Village Festival in June which includes a traditional dance around the Bournville Village Maypole. It is, perhaps, the country’s largest Maypole and follows a tradition going back over 100 years.

The Maypole Dance requires a great many children to participate. The preparations, rehearsals and the final performance can be tremendous fun both for the children and for the parents.

If your child would like to join us and be a Maypole Dancer, please turn up for registration on Monday 6th March at 6.30 p.m. at Dame Elizabeth Hall.on Firbank Close just off Oak Tree Lane, Bournville. Registration forms will be available on the night.

You and your family will be most welcome.
