They think it’s all over …….. but there is more to come !

Sad to see the end of 10 days of events for Moseley Festival 2014?

Well, you’ll be delighted to know that there is more in store. Some events just couldn’t be fitted in to the 10 day time frame, so there are treats still to look forward to.

Flying Teapot Events have a Street Food and Flea Market on Saturday 19th 10am -3pm on the Village Green.

At 7.30pm on Saturday 19th, there is the ever-popular Music for  a Summer Evening at St Mary’s Church. St Mary’s Choir and Singers offer a variety of music from ancient to modern to suit all tastes. Admission is free, and there is a retiring collection.

That same evening, One Night at the Proms is staged by Birmingham Brass Band at Joseph Chamberlain College. Bring your own picnic and a blanket – the concert will be outside if weather permits. Tickets are £7/£5, space is limited and booking in advance is recommended by emailing birminghambrassband@yahoo.co.uk.

And then on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd The Prince of Wales will be staging their postponed Moseley’s Got Talent competition in the garden of the pub.

So the action continues. See you there !

Moseley Festival enters its final day – some real treats on offer

Well, here we go for our 10th and final day.

Get yourselves down to the Birmingham Buddhist Centre in Park Rd this afternoon for their Open Day. This is a chance to explore the centre, relax with tea and cake in the spacious garden, look around the various shrine rooms, try a meditation tester or find out about Buddhism in a Question and Answer session. They are open 1pm till 5pm, so do drop in some time.

The Mostly Jazz , Funk and Soul festival continues in the Park. The weather isn’t looking as good as the last two days, but the forecast is now good for the rest of the day.  We hear that the Family Stone are heading the line-up today.

This evening sees the second performance of Life and Times of the Tat Man. The venue is the Dance Workshop 132 Alcester Rd. We hear that it was very well received on its opening night yesterday.

Special offer at Priya continues. Three courses  £8.95

And finally (well, sort of  - see next blog post) there is the unofficial Mostly Jazz After Party at the Prince of Wales.

Have a great Moseley Festival Sunday.
