As Wolverhampton looks forward to one of the highlights of its cultural calendar, West Midlands Metro is gearing up to aid thousands of people make the most of a packed programme of events.
The popular tram network is proudly sponsoring one of the main events at this year’s festival, ‘Enter,’ set to take place during the first weekend in February.
Organised by the City of Wolverhampton Council, with funding support from Arts Council England, the festival aims to celebrate the voices of authors, poets, storytellers, and publishers from across the UK, as well as local writers, artists and creatives.
Following the successful launch of services to Wolverhampton Station last year, the Metro has made it easier than ever for people from across the region and beyond to travel to and from venues across the town.
Michael Reading Skilton, Metro’s Head of Commercial, commented: “Since opening just a few months ago, the extension in Wolverhampton has proved hugely popular, enhancing connections with the wider transport network.
“As a result, we’re keen to do all we can to support the communities we serve, and this sponsorship will provide a welcome boost for one of the town’s most important cultural events.”
An exciting programme of events during the festival includes a captivating cross-continental journey as poets and artists unite in a creative exploration of our shared world.
From the heart of Wolverhampton to the charming town of Lörrach in Germany, these talented visionaries have embarked on a unique expedition, and visitors can discover their work at the Arena Theatre on Saturday, February 3.
