I had the honour of being asked to attend the Old Hill Festival as part of the Black Country Festival. The event has been running for a number of years but this year was bigger and better than ever. It was completely overwhelming to see so many people awaiting tor the festivities to begin.
I filmed a section for the documentary to be aired later in the year about the spirit of Black Country Day which was so exciting. I was obviously asked what my favourite Black Country phrase was to which I answered ‘Z is for strippy os’ which for those from outside of the area, means a Zebra.
The day as a whole was fantastic and I went home feeling on top of the world; what a great feeling to have when starting my birthday celebrations that evening with some of my favourite people?!
The time had then arrived for us to film our main snippet. I had been asked if I would do the honour of unveiling the official Black Country Cake so as soon as we went live, I was ready and waiting with my wonderful golden umbrella to do the big reveal. It was such a fantastic thing to have been a part of and I am so so proud to call myself a Black Country Wench.
