The 2016 Dickens Heath Festival on the Green takes place on Saturday 10 September, with free entry for everyone. This year’s line-up features the brilliant Boys Only Choir from Dickens Heath School, local band The Undisputed playing some all-time pop favourites, Solihull Pop Chorus and the afternoon ends with the best of the West End and Broadway from Crescendo Musical Theatre. There will also be performances by Love2Dance and the local Irish Dance troupe.
With more than 25 different stalls attending there will be plenty to do in between performances including a rope bridge challenge, the launch of a Dickens Heath scarecrow competition, football skills challenges, mini-golf, crafts, family games, the Emergency Services vehicles and some fantastic food and drink stalls too. The ice cream van is booked so let’s keep fingers crossed that the sun continues to shine!
A huge thank you to our main 2016 event sponsor – Smart Homes – together with the Parish Council, Village Hall and the Church, without whom FOTG simply wouldn’t be possible. The committee would also like to thank the huge range of supporting stallholders including The Eastern, Janaki, Cre8, Coffee Cloud, Wendy House, DH Scouts, Red Kite Cycles, Solihull Police and Fire Service, The River and Canal Trust, Leafield Athletic, Position Specific Coaching, and the DH Model Aeroplane Club .
