DARING high-wire artists are preparing for a fun performance as part of Bromsgrove Festival.

French troupe Transe Express is set to perform its act Mobile Hommes above the town's historic rooftops on Saturday, July 19.

The free public event features trapaze artists and musicians who will be performing suspended above the town's historic rooftops in a towering procession.

The procession will be winding its way through the south of the town to a grand finale in the car park on Hanover Street.

Townsfolk are being encouraged to get involved by bringing along their own percussion.

Bromsgrove District councillor Michael Webb, who is responsible for leisure, said: “Bromsgrove has never seen a production on this enormous scale.

"We’re very excited to increase our contribution to the Bromsgrove Festival, which this year is bigger and better than ever.”

The procession begins in High Street, near Costa, at 5.45pm. Town centre roads will be closed for a couple of hours while the party passes through.

The event is part of the relaunched festival that is running for five weeks during this summer.
