Moor Pool Heritage Festival
Experience the wonderful community spirit and Arts and Crafts splendour of Moor Pool Estate, the hidden Garden Suburb a stone’s throw from Birmingham City Centre. Our Heritage Festival delivers a village fete vibe near the heart of the city!
Sun 10 Sept is a unique opportunity to discover the Moor Pool Estate, one of the last remaining intact Garden Suburbs in the UK and one of Birmingham’s best kept secrets.
The festival kicks off at 11am with a range of activities to entertain the whole family. Unwrap Moor Pool’s creativity from through the ages, finding out who built this Arts & Crafts Estate and celebrating the activities that have taken place past to present with dance and music!
We have a packed programme highlighting the range of exciting activities that regularly take place around the Estate and welcome back Sovereign Brass Band playing at the Circle and Barbershop Chorus!
Regular clubs will be open on the day, and visitors will have the chance to try their hand at the activities including Edwardian skittles, bowling, tennis and snooker. Enjoy home-made cakes and home grown produce and learn more about the wide range of events which take place at Moor Pool throughout the year including taster sessions and demos from Line Dancing, Mezzo Dance, Billinguasing, Mini Athletics, and Baby Ballet amongst many others.
There will be fun for all the family! Craft, planting and face-painting at the Carless Eco Centre, and themed trails across the Estate and Nettlefold Garden.
Events also take place at Moor Pool Hall and also at locations across the Estate at the Bowling Club, Moor Pool Tennis Club and Nettlefold Garden located along Moor Pool Avenue, and The Carless Eco Centre off Carless Avenue.
The walk will take approximately 1 hour, other taster activities are drop in and can take from 5 minutes to 30 minutes to complete. Parking is also available on Ravenhurst Road and nearby Harborne High Street, which is a 10 minute walk from Moor Pool. Street parking is available but limited as the streets are very narrow.
