Fans chance to have pictures taken

Wolves fans can have their picture taken with the Sky Bet League One trophy at the Wolverhampton & Black Country Show this weekend.

Supporters will be able to pose with the trophy won by Kenny Jackett’s team while club mascots Wolfie and Wendy will also be paying a visit at different times over the weekend as well.  

It’s the first time Wolves have teamed up with the city council-run show, which is being held in West Park on July 12-13.

The club has joined a list of partners championing the popular family event, which this year sees support from the BBC’s flagship World War One at Home tour, Signal 107, Banks’s and Wolverhampton Civic Halls. 

Cllr Elias Mattu, Wolverhampton City Council Cabinet Member for Leisure and Communities, said: “We’ve just had confirmation that Wolves will be joining us at the show, which this year brings together more city partners than ever before to put on a great family event.

“I’m sure there are a lot of loyal fans out there who will want to get a photo of themselves with the trophy ahead of the new season.” 

Matt Grayson, head of marketing and communications at Wolves, added: “We are delighted to be getting involved with an event with the whole of the city working together.

“We will be bringing the League One trophy to West Park on both days where fans will be able to get their picture taken with it. Fans will need to bring their own camera to take their photos. 

“We will have a small retail outlet at the show too. In between some of the arena acts we will be running penalty shoot-outs with our mascots Wolfie and Wendy.

“This is the first year we have been involved in the show and we hope that our involvement will grow in the coming years.”

As well as the arena there are two performance stages and Banks’s Beer Festival, serving 16 real ales is also on tap throughout the weekend.

Other attractions include old favourites the Monster Trucks, Gerrard Naprous and the Devil’s Horsemen, Bolddog Lings Free Style Motorcross Team and Elaine Hill’s sheepdog display, while there will also be a miniature steam railway, fairground rides and a variety of stalls.

Meanwhile, West Park will also be hosting the BBC’s prestigious World War One at Home tour over the same weekend. 

Actor Larry Lamb will be at the Briefing Room on Saturday, with One Show reporter Lucy Siegle taking up the reins on the Sunday. They’ll be presenting a series of enlightening talks with expert contributors covering a whole host of First World War topics, including record producer and rail buff Pete Waterman who will talk about the history of the railways during the conflict. 

As well as live broadcasts from BBC WM the World War One at Home event will include hands-on activities, performances and interactive sessions for all ages.

Entry to the Wolverhampton and Black Country Show is just £3 for adults and £2 for children aged two to 16. Entry to the BBC World War One at Home tour is free.
