CBeebies star YolanDA to headline our evening of celebration as Sandwell Goes Global

Published 2nd November 2022

CBeebies star YolanDA will take her popular children’s music show from the TV screen to the live stage when she headlines at our Illuminated Garden event this Friday at Dartmouth Park, West Bromwich.

The award-winning jazz saxophonist and her band are set to get both children and adults bopping and bouncing along when she takes to the Global Arena stage for an evening of family fun, which is being held under the theme ‘Sandwell Goes Global’.

The evening on Friday 4 November will be a celebration of Sandwell’s place in the world and builds on our successful hosting of the swimming and diving events at the Commonwealth Games this summer. Light installations and displays will bring colour to the park and the playground will be lit in technicolour. The Island Family Zone will offer steel pan fun and bubble performances, while the Broadway Zone will host family theatre performances.

Families can take part in amazing arts and crafts in the Monaco Zone, and in the evening there will be a chance to get active in the Olympiad. The Carnevale Zone will be full of fair rides while The Bazaar and Night Souk will be filled with opportunities to enjoy great food from around the world and do some evening shopping.

The event is low-noise, making it suitable for those who prefer not to attend traditional fireworks displays. Friendly dogs on leads are welcome.

Tickets for the Friday event are available on the gate:

  • Adults £8 
  • Child/Concession  £7
  • Child under 2 Free
  • Family 2+2  £15 
  • Family 1+2 £12 

The following day, Saturday 5 November, tickets for the fireworks display have now sold out. Please do not travel to Saturday evening's event without a ticket.
