EXHIBITIONS, events and entertainment will be on offer across the borough to celebrate the Black Country’s manufacturing creativity and innovation.

Activities form part of the Black Country Echoes Project - a joint initiative between the four Black Country local authorities, working with the voluntary, arts, community and business organisations.

A foghorn exhibition will open at Wordsley's Red House Glass Cone from September 27 and run throughout October.

It will feature a life-size replica of the 1920s Chance Brothers fog horn along with a diverse range of manufacturing products, including post-war handkerchief vases.

A vintage motorbike gathering will also take place at the cone on September 28, showcasing Black Country made bikes.

Dudley town centre will host an exhibition of Black Country vehicles on Stone Street Square, on Saturday September 27 at the same time Dudley Museum and Art Gallery launches its Echoes of the Past and Future exhibition, with work celebrating local industry.

Movies at the Museums will run at Dudley Museum, Kingswinford's Broadfield House Glass Museum and the Red House Glass Cone, from September through to December, with films including Luv’in the Black Country.

Councillor Hilary Bills, cabinet member for environment and culture, said: “The Black Country Festival during July was celebrated by thousands of people across the area and the Echoes project is a great way to keep the momentum going.

"We have so much to celebrate in terms of our proud manufacturing past and I’m delighted to see museums across Dudley borough have put on such a fantastic range of activities.”
