This event is organised by Enjoy Wolverhampton BID (Business Improvement District) to draw more people into the city, that may not have been in for a while. Director Cherry Shine said “the whole day and night had been fantastic! once again the weather has been on our side” She went on to say ” it’s our biggest turnout yet. It was lovely to see so many families out in Wolverhampton, just relaxing and enjoying themselves. What we would like to do going forward is more frequent, small scale events. This is what Enjoy Wolverhampton BID is trying to do to support our city. We want to attract footfall and promote local businesses too.”
