One of the Black Country's oldest fairground families make a welcome return to the City of Wolverhampton in July for their second fiesta.

The Harry Jones Company is holding the 2 day Wolverhampton Fiesta in West Park on Saturday 15 July and Sunday 16 July.

It promises a range of entertainment, including giant monster trucks, an international stunt team, T-Rex Dinosaur and Chinese Lion Dancers, the best traditional fairground rides, and food and trade stalls.

Tribute act Beyonce will entertain audiences on a music stage, along with Jason Jones from the Voice, in both afternoon and evening shows.

The Harry Jones Company, based in Thompson Avenue, Parkfields, has been providing fairground entertainment in the Black Country for more than a century.

Twenty five year old Harry Jones, whose great grandfather started the business with a simple coconut shy in 1893, said: "We had a really successful year in 2016 and we are glad to be back again to provide entertainment for the people of Wolverhampton.

"Over two days we are providing not just our well-loved fairground rides but also live entertainment, fire breathers, Chinese dancers, and breathtaking displays by motorcross stunt show teams, to name but a few acts.

"We want to give families looking for a day out some great entertainment on their doorstep."

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "The Jones family have been providing fairground entertainment for generations.

"It's great that they are hosting the fiesta again in West Park and I hope plenty of families will come along to enjoy the funfair and all the other attractions."

The Wolverhampton Fiesta takes place at West Park from 12pm to 8pm on both days. Entrance will cost £3 for adults and £2 for children. Additional charges apply.
