Hillz FM will be hosting the ever popular Earsldon Festival on Monday 4th May. Our very own Ray Reid will be compering the event, which will feature the likes of The Coventry Morris Men and Elizabeth Lamb School of Dance. Hillz presenter Keith Fabrique will also be performing a number or his own songs to round off the event from 3pm at the Main Performance Area. Performances kick off with Morris Dancing at 10.30am. As well as the acts at the Main Performance Area, there will also be fitness performances outside The Juice House, compared by Morrocan Dave.

On May Day, Earlsdon Street will filled with all sorts of market stalls and other activities. We have a performance area outside The Royal Oak and fitness / exercise zone near The Juice House.
Nearby venues such as the Criterion Theatre, Earlsdon Methodist Church, the library, The Albany Club, St Barbara’s Church and the City Arms all join in and have events / activities taking place as well. 2015 sees the return of Earlsdon Primary School’s playground as a hub for children’s and community focused activities.
There has traditionally been a line of “Fringe Events” taking place around Earlsdon by different organisations in the lead up to the big day kicking off on Tuesday evening.
Tuesday 28th April will see a Festival Quiz Night at The Albany Pub. Proceeds will go to supporting their community projects which include flower planting, restoration of street signs and community clean-ups. £5 per team. Minimum of 6 players per team.
On Wednesday, The Royal Oak will be hosting a poetry evening, compered by local poet Aysar Ghassan from 7.30pm. Admission is free – donations towards the Radford War Memorial Restoration Fund would be appreciated.
Join local historians for a guided ‘walk through history’ and learn more about the fascinating past of Earlsdon on from 6.45pm Thursday 30th April at Earlsdon Methodist Church or head to The Albany Club from 8.00pm for an evening of Jazz with multi-award winning performer Alan Barnes and the highly acclaimed band The Bryan Corbett Quartet (£12 per person)
Friday will see a 60’s night at The Albany Club from 7.30 (£6 entrance fee). Former Britain’s Got Talent contestant Estelle Evans will be performing some classic hits. Remember to dress for the occasion (60’s style dress code). Or why not pop down to The Juice House for Mocktails and music. Enjoy some healthy drinks and quality music from local singer songwriters in the intimate setting of the Juice House from 5.00PM-9.00PM.
There will be more activities than you can shake a stick at on Saturday, including the Spencer Park Activity Day, an antique sale and valuation at The Gilbert Richards Centre and The Earlsdon Beer Festival (certainly a favourite for the gents).
The Subterraneans will be headlining a concert at The Albany Club from 7.30 on Sunday 30th (tickets cost £10, 18+ event), before the big day on Bank Holiday Monday.
