A MUSIC festival in memory of a Kidderminster music scene legend will make a return next month.

Mr Tee in the Park will take place at St George’s Park on Sunday, July 1 with a host of bands playing from 12.30pm to 6pm.

The first event was held last year as a tribute to celebrate the life of Terry Thomas – AKA Mr Tee – who died on May 30 2017 at the age of 66, following a battle with cancer.

Mr Thomas ran Mister Tee’s Rock Stop in the Horsefair for almost 40 years and was a hugely popular member of the community and beyond.

This year’s event will be free entry once again and bands already confirmed include Blind Lemon, The Murmur, Bewdley Concert Band, Stiff Joints, James Baker and Amelia Street.

There will also be vinyl music played by DJ Pigstyle as well as bouncy castles, face painters, tea and cakes and other refreshments.

Horsefair and Proud community group chair and organiser of Mr Tee in the Park Dawn Anglin said: “Terry owned a shop for many years and was a real champion of the Horsefair, as well as being a great supporter and promoter of music within Wyre Forest, and we really miss him

“We held this event last year as we thought it would serve as a fitting tribute to his work within the community.

“We were completely blown away by the support last year’s event attracted, and this year’s festival is a response to the numerous requests asking us to make it an annual event.

“With more bands and artists booked coupled with added stalls and side attractions to appeal to all ages, this promises to be even bigger and better than last years, so we recommending that people bring a chair and picnic and feel the love.”

Gates open at noon and people can find out more by visiting the Horsefair and Proud Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/1588995371424471/
