Here’s a taste of past events

In 2017 our headline arena act was The Cavalry of Heroes, who performed fast-paced equestrian displays including a “Cavalry through the Ages” show. This started out in Roman times, moved through medieval jousting and culminated with a tribute to riders of the First World War. They really captivated the crowds with their spectacular horsemanship and thrilling stunts.

In the music tent, we welcomed the fabulous Bluebird Belles who brought us songs from the 1940s, together with popular rockabilly band The Straight Aces. Their music took us back in time to celebrate past decades.

Vintage Vehicles and 100 Years of Transport Parade

We were proud to display a fantastic array of vintage vehicles that took centre stage in the High Street Parade, whilst also marking the National Trust Kinver Edge Centenary with at least one classic vehicle from every decade, starting out at 1917 through to 2017.

The vehicles were then on display in the event fields on Stag Meadow, enabling visitors to speak with the proud owners and grab a photo or two.

The UK’s Most Versatile Vocal Harmony Trio

Offering a huge range of styles from pre-1920s through to the present day, in fabulous, glamorous, authentic vintage style!

Inspired by original female trios The Boswell Sisters & The Andrews Sisters, and influenced by later girl groups The Chordettes, The Supremes & The Velvelettes, the girls each have their own unique vocal qualities that blend together to create beautiful, slick vocal harmonies to delight every ear!

The Straight Aces – fast paced rockabilly band

Covering a mixture of original tracks with a blend of neo and also some self-penned numbers, the band plays around the country at venues like the Rockabilly Rave, Ace Cafe and many rock n roll clubs. Lead vocalist and guitarist is Steve Taylor.  Driving that rockabilly rhythm is double bass player Jim Smith and on the drums there’s the Black Country bomber aka Steve Higgs.

The Falconry Centre – birds of prey arena display

Kinver Country Fayre welcomed back the ever-popular falconry display team from Hagley, with the birds and the skilled falconer showing off their skills in the arena.

There was also a display of birds on a pitch on the fields, enabling visitors to meet the birds at close quarters.

The display comprised different types of birds such as Harris hawks, owls, falcons and at least one of the larger impressive birds, an eagle or a vulture.

HCW Championship Wrestling

The stars of SKY TV’s Wrestling Show Plus came to Kinver for the very first time with a international line up of grappling greats. American sensation Duke Warfield, the popular heavyweight from Memphis, TN made his first appearance on his World Tour to do battle against Great Britain’s Dan Striker of Cannock. The Wrestling show provided by local promoters HCW Championship Wrestling also included a tag team action and an all star super heavyweight clash.
