Doomsday – A Wednesbury Reckoning featuring a wealth of Black Country Talent

Date: June 16, 2023
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: St Bartholomews Church, Church Hill, Wednesbury

It’s a minute to midnight on the Doomsday Clock and the spirits of Wednesbury have been called together at The Black Church to state their case for salvation before God. Who should be saved from the Fiery Holes and the Furnaces? Ethelfleida the warrior Queen? John Wesley’s ‘Oss Block? The Tubeworker? The Green Man or the Fighting Cock?

Join us for an evening of song and spoken word at St Bartholemew’s Church on Friday 16th June. Featuring performances from a range of Black Country talent including Brendan Hawthorne, Priyanka Joshi, Alex Vann, Heather Wastie, Steve Pottinger, Billy Spakemon, Emma Purshouse, Trudy King, Reaya Seeley, Suzan Spence and David Calcutt.
