Bantock House Museum and Park is set to host an all new 1 day acoustic music festival, Banstock.

The festival, on Saturday 9 July, will showcase local talent and is being headlined by Wolverhampton's own Ivor Novello award winning songwriter, Scott Matthews.

Other acts include Birmingham post punk skiffle outfit Terry and Gerry playing their first gig in Wolverhampton since their recent support of Status Quo at Wolverhampton Civic Hall.

Former frontman of The Lines, Alex Ohm will also be making an appearance fresh from his sell out show at Birmingham's Institute. With The Lines, Alex's local support was such that he played several sell out shows at the Wulfrun Hall and his solo project will be one of the highlights of the first Banstock.

More acts will be announced over the coming weeks, and Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "We are very excited about the first Banstock, which promises to be a fantastic, family friendly event in the picturesque surroundings of Bantock Park.

"It is particularly pleasing that Banstock will be able to showcase the skills of so many highly talented local performers."

Banstock takes place on Saturday 9 July from 3pm to 10.30pm. Tickets are on sale now and are, priced £11.24 including booking fee until Monday 6 June, and £16.86 including booking fee thereafter.
