The free event celebrating the city's rich engineering past - and its bright future - is being held as part of this month's Enjoy Wolverhampton programme.

It runs from 10am to 4pm at the historic house and park, off Finchfield Road, and visitors will also be able to get information on joining the Armed Forces or visit the displays in the military camp.

Companies who will be available to speak on the day include JCB, Auctus Management Group, and Thompson AVC.

The likes of City of Wolverhampton College, University of Wolverhampton, and EEF - The Manufacturers' Organisation, will also be on hand to provide apprenticeships information.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy said: "As well as a fantastic day out for all the family, this event presents a first-class opportunity for youngsters looking to get into engineering.

"Engineering opens up so many opportunities and this event is about promoting those to both business, the community, employers and young people looking for careers."
