“We can’t wait to welcome families back after the past year and a half when it has been tough on everyone.

“We also want to reassure visitors that we will make sure the show continues with Covid-19 secure measures including hand santiser and regular cleaning as well as the use of tokens.

“Most of all though we want families to come along and enjoy the huge variety of quality entertainment on offer as it is going to be a great weekend of fun and all on the doorstep for Walsall residents,” added Elleray.

“Visitors can expect all the traditional family thrills and rides from the whizzing waltzers and the daring dodgems to the colourful carousel and speeding sizzler.”
