THERE will be a variety of street food, live DJs and more at Bromsgrove’s first ever night-time street party being held between 5.30pm and 8pm on Saturday, November 17, to showcase local independent businesses.
The event takes place on the Worcester Road – which will be closed to traffic – after the Christmas lights switch-on.
The street party, similar to the ‘dining clubs’ held in Birmingham, is the brainchild of a number of independent businesses which got together and formed the ‘Bromsgrove Indie Club’.
Photographer Anthony Hall said: “We wanted to capture the vibe of the dining clubs and there will be a lot of different food and drink delights on offer.”
There will be a barbecue from Ollie’s Eatery, Caribbean samples, a range of food from Casa Med and a hog roast from The Salt and Pepper Pig – the catering arm of Fuso.
There will also be Mexican churos on offer, along with a host of other mouth-watering street food.
Tony Miles – the winner of the 57 Monkeys’ DJ competition which The Standard helped launch – will be opening the evening at 5.30pm with his set.
Also performing will be a number of other DJs, including Ryan Appleby, Ryan Davies, Dan Green, Kirk Taylor and Jason Simmonds.
Street Fire Performers from RoguePlay Birmingham will be lighting up the event and there will be a taste of Brazil from Bromsgrove’s very own Samba band Someone at the Door.
Parts of the evening will be featured on the Like Radio Live Broadcast.
The popularity of the Bromsgrove Indie Club has snowballed since it launched two months ago and the website has had more than 35,000 visitors, so much so it has had to be redesigned and extended.
The members of Bromsgrove Indie Club hope this night-time street party will be the first of many.
They are planning to hold around seven or eight similar showcases throughout the year to coincide with events taking place in the town centre.
And they are also keen to hear from people about what they would like to see incorporated into forthcoming street parties.
