Visitors to Bantock House Museum will be on song when a popular annual music festival is held on Bank Holiday Monday.

Bantock Music Live will be held at the venue from 12pm to 4pm on 26 May and the free event, which has been running since 2002, will deliver a mix of acoustic and vocal sounds.

The line up of talented local performers includes Bantock regulars The Gallaghers, performing their own style of Irish folk, and Fred Wisdom who will be supporting the African drumming of Kalillo.

Further entertainment will be provided by gospel group The Destiny Ambassadors,

Acoustic performers Sharodene Mellis, Rob Fellows, Daniel Kirk and Cash before Wolverhampton band Chronicles of Zee finish off the day's entertainment.

Co-organiser Kevin Wilkins, said, "I'm really looking forward to Bantock Music Live.

"We've put together a great line up and visitors will be able to enjoy a wide range of music performed by accomplished local musicians."

The event will take place in the courtyard, weather permitting, otherwise it will move inside.

The museum and courtyard cafe will be open from 11am to 5pm. The museum is free entry and currently has a temporary exhibition, All that Glisters, about the history of locally made cut steel jewellery, which were fashionable items in 1700 and 1800s.
