FOLLOWING on from a bostin' Black Country Weekend, Black Country Living Museum is hosting its first ever Black Country Night.

Visitors can expect an evening of 'Black Country Tapas', street entertainment, legendary tribute acts and much more on Saturday, September 13 from 6.30-10pm.

Confirmed to perform are The Empty Can, who rose to prominence with their song I Vow to thee Black Country.

There will also be music Brett Huckfield and Linda Simpson performing on stage at the Museum's Folkes' Park.

People will be greeted by the Fizzogs' hilarious Black Country shennanigans, and be laughing all the way to the Workers' Institute as a host of local stand-up comedy acts perform on stage. There will also be a very special tribute act in the form of local legend Dolly Allen, the performance marking 70 years since her first stand-up routine in 1944.

Typical Black Country fare will also be available, including the Museum's tasty 'Black Country Tapas', featuring a selection of classics such as scratchings, pork pies, rabbit stew and faggots an' 'paes' with the chance to wash it all down with a selection of local ales by Saddlers Brewery including the newly-launched Peaky Blinders ale.

There's also plenty to see at the museum, including the Newcomen Engine in steam, metal working demonstrations and an underground mine trip.
