Like a Phoenix from the ashes, the Autumn Fayre has been reborn as Halesfest! It will take place in Halesowen Town on Saturday October 13th & will be a community event in collaboration with HIB, BID, Halesowen College. It will feature the Enchanted Mushroom Trail.

Did you know that there are rare fungi in Leasowes, the only Grade 1 listed garden in Europe! To celebrate this, mushrooms will begin to appear in  around Halesowen shortly. No, I cant tell you when! The Egyptians thought mushrooms were magic as they would suddenly appear ovenight so keep a watchful eye!

On October 13th, the day of Halesfest, we will be building a 'fairy ring' inside the 'cage' at the top of the town. Some of you will already have taken part in making mushrooms in the Cornbow Centre & taken away instructions of a school holiday mushroom make.  Bring your mushrooms along on the day, follow the trail & join in the fun!
