  • Kinver Community Coffee Morning

    kinver coffee-morning final


    Plans have been announced for what is believed to be the biggest musical event ever to be held in Kinver.

    The village’s Rotary Club have joined the organisers of last year’s Kinver Music Event to create a three-day festival that will see most of the village’s public houses, community halls, and schools host a massive variety of performers that will cater for everybody’s taste in music.

    Following the theme of last year’ successful event, free live music will be playing at venues throughout the village on Friday July 10 and Sunday July 12, sandwiching the Rotary Club’s Saturday Spectacular Emulating Rotary’s memorable Musical Extravaganza of a few years ago, the Saturday Spectacular will feature a brass band, choirs, a traditional Irish band

    and other speciality acts who will perform throughout the evening at five venues, including Edgecliff  schools, Kinver Methodist Church and Church hall, St Peter’s Church Hall and the KSCA where a stunning laser show is planned as a finale.

    All performers will present programmes at set times and for set periods of 30 to 40 minutes duration to allow visitors to move from one to the other throughout the evening. One payment will cover entry into all venues for the entire evening, although a one-off charge will be made for admission to a two hour performance by one of the world’s finest accordion duos that is to take place during the afternoon.

    On Friday and Sunday pubs and other locations are going to be hosting gigs, with blues, pop, rock, jazz, country and folk sessions expected to bring in the crowds. Full details of performers, times and locations will be available nearer to the date. If you are a local performer and are interested in playing should contact tim.charnock@btinternet.com.

    Proceeds from the three day event will be split between the Mary Stevens Hospice and Acorns Children’s’ Hospice (except the accordion recital which will go to the village’s Chernobyl Children’s’ charity).

Find out about where to eat or stay in Kinver Village, what businesses and shops trade in the village and how to enjoy a full day out in this wonderful little oasis of the Black Country. There is plenty to be enjoyed by all the family for tourists, and villagers alike. A brilliant location to live or to visit for a holiday.

The award winning village of Kinver and the surrounding countryside is steeped in history dating back thousands of years. The centre of Kinver village was planned in the feudal 13th century during the reign of the Plantagenet Monarchs, and the original burgage plots along the High Street remain today. There are plenty of Tudor Houses and Inns which have won awards for their restoration. The village was within the Royal Forest of Kinver, and nearby Stourton Castle was the Royal Hunting Lodge and Royal Forester’s lodge for King John. Kinver Forest was part of a large forest which included Wyre and Morfe Forests. Whilst the forest is a shadow of it’s once large expanse, Kinver can be easilly located with good accuracy in Google Earth from a great height.

Kinver Edge is a woodland sandstone ridge high above the village offering fantastic views across the West Midlands and surrounding counties, now owned by the National Trust. The sandstone rocks date back 230 million years to when dinosaurs roamed the planet, and are said to be the last inhabitated caves in Europe. The Martindale Caves were restored and reopened to the public in 2012. The Staffs & Worcs canal passes through the village at Dunsley, and is popular for boaters passing through on a boating holiday, walkers, cyclists and anglers.
