Bearwood Street Festival – Sunday 11 June 2017

On Sunday 11 June from 11.30 am to 5.30 pm, Bearwood High Street will host its first ever community-led music and arts festival right in the centre of the neighbourhood.

Odd things have been happening and Bearwood’s own paranormal investigator Ivor Goosebump, has been reporting this in his regular blogs. Could the recent reinstallation of Bearwood’s iconic timepieces somehow have caused time to go wrong?

A theatre trail performed by Highly Sprung will bring to life the mystery. Characters from Bearwood’s past and future will help visitors to find the missing ‘cogs’ needed to repair time. Highly Spring’s innovative blend of physical performance and animated storytelling is sure to excite audiences.

Younger visitors will have plenty to keep them busy with futuristic themed crafts, games and street art workshop.

Live music on the main stage will reflect Bearwood’s eclectic musical heritage with something for all tastes. Headliners, The Electric Swing Circus, bring an explosive sound fusion that reverberates back through time.

There will be cultural and audio feasts provided by the Community Stage.

Some of the best in regional street foods will be available in the Food Parade and a host of local entrepreneurs and crafters showing their goods in Bearwood Indoor Market.

If travelling by car, you can park for free at Lightwoods Park Extension and catch a vintage Midland Red courtesy bus to the festival drop-off point by St Mary’s Church.

Make Sunday 11 June a date in your diary to visit this amazing free event.

The ‘Getting Contract Ready’ Workshop

The world of funding can often seem confusing and at times impenetrable. Funding applications and meeting the requirements of specifications and tenders can often appear complicated and the completion process a somewhat daunting task. 

So with all this mind the Handsworth Association of Schools (HAS) have commissioned one of its preferred providers to deliver an introductory session and follow-up workshop around ‘contract readiness’.  

The session will be delivered by the facilitator using real life case studies for a forthcoming ESIF employability funding round (deadline 30/6/17) and the requirements of meeting this specification and in particular the due diligence & eligibility, financial compliance, governance & partnership arrangements, project development, monitoring & compliance, risks and finally the bid writing requirements.  

The workshop is being held on Wednesday, 7th June 2017 from 9.30am to 3.00pm at the HAS Conference Centre in Handsworth.

Tickets for attendance need to be purchased in advance and you can get your by clicking this EVENTBRITE LINK

**PLEASE NOTE** This is an event being organised by a third party and so any questions need to be directed to the organiser, Handsworth Association of Schools (via the Eventbrite page).
