The main feedback we received on how we can improve future events, was to have a substantially bigger venue which prompted us to book one of the largest venues in the West Midlands! We are expecting to attract over 3000 visitors and over 150 Stallholders on the day.


We will have a designated children’s area with bouncing castles, games, food stalls and a break out zone for people to relax and eat some the beautiful cuisines available.


Food, drinks, books, crafts, beauty products, garments and more will be available from the cultural market. Black businesses will also be promoting their services on the day.
