Can under 18s attend?
Only on Saturday which is a "family" day

Will there be any entertainment?
Two acts on Friday evening with three acts during the day on Saturday

Can I volunteer?
Most certainly. Click on the DWAF 2021 volunteering link.

What's the best way to get there?
We'd recommend using buses in to Dudley Town Centre, which serves many routes around the Black Country and Birmingham.

Click and use Google Maps - Dudley Bus Garage to Town Hall to get from the garage to the town hall, which is a 5-10 minute walk.

Nearest main line railway stations are Sandwell & Dudley, Wolverhampton and Birmingham New Street with Dudley Port being the nearest local station, however this is still a good mile from the town hall.

For drivers, we recommend looking at options within https://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/near/dudley-town-hall/

Are there any considerations for COVID?
It's key that we keep ourselves safe and we would ask all patrons to keep a respective distance between others. The town hall's windows will be kept open to circulate fresh air within. Of course, that does mean that it may be cooler than usual. Hand gel is available, and we would ask that you consider wearing facemasks where it's possible.

Can I attend if I have had symptoms of COVID or are awaiting a result?
We would respectfully ask that you don't attend. If you have pre-booked and are unable to attend from a positive PCR test, please contact us so we can look in to a potential refund.
