Festivities in Bromsgrove are set to continue as residents are invited to rock around the Christmas Tree at the town’s award-winning BirdBox.

Welcome Back Christmas, a series of festive events across the District will be launched at the events space in Market Street on December 2.

By the light of a 25-foot Christmas tree there will be music from North Worcestershire’s Rock Choir and food and drink provided by local vendors including No. 3a and Ascotts.

Welcome Back Christmas continues in Aston Fields on Tuesday December 14th where the sound of Christmas Carols will fill the air. There will also be Christmas music and local vendors selling festive fayre from hog roasts to mulled wine, from 5pm till 10pm.
As part of the festivities a Christmas Market will be held at BirdBox with wooden chalets selling handmade crafts, street food, steins of German beer and boozy hot chocolate.

The market will be open on the following days with different vendors each time:
Friday 17th December, 2PM – 8PM
Saturday 18th December, 12PM – 8PM
Sunday 19th December, 12PM – 5PM

Bromsgrove District Council Leader Karen May said “This is more good news for Bromsgrove which in the last month has seen BirdBox clinch a top award and the town secure £14m of funding for regeneration.
“It’s great to see these events following on from the official Christmas lights switch on so we can continue to celebrate in the run up to Christmas and support our local traders and independent businesses.”

Welcome Back Christmas follows the successful Welcome Back launch event in October, and the Jazz around Town events using cash from the Government’s Welcome Back Fund and under the ‘Your People, Your Places, Your Bromsgrove’ banner.
These events mark the halfway point in a series of projects which will run through to 31 March 2022 as the Council and NWEDR work across the District’s centres to spend the money allocated by the Welcome Back Fund.

As part of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the monies are to support the safe return to high streets and help build back better from the pandemic.
