Colors of Wolverhampton - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

Many people primarily associate Wolverhampton with its football club nicknamed "Wolves", which brought the city its fame. Historic cathedrals, cobbled streets, and pavements are in the second place. Traveling here, you should take into account some character traits of local residents. Thus, they are distinguished by some “simplicity” and restraint. It is easy to find a common language with them, as they can talk about anything and know how to be good listeners. And it's all thanks to local tea traditions because the most interesting conversations are held over a cup of tea.

Locals are also distinguished by straightforwardness. However, it does not prevent them from smiling at everyone and not saying things that may somehow upset the interlocutor. They only demonstrate straightforwardness when they feel that a person can distinguish constructive and non-constructive criticism. They never point out the flaws of a person they see for the first time. In the same way as would never refuse to help if it's needed - feel free to ask for any assistance. All this is due to a very useful quality - ability to know where to draw the line when it is needed - and it is always needed. Well, this is something we should learn from local people.
The city hosts a lot of interesting festivals, which both tourists and local residents are eager to visit. First of all, it is worth noting the Wolverhampton Street Festival taking place at the end of April. At this time, you can see the hospitality and fun reigning around with your own eyes. The program includes the opening of food courts with beer and snacks, gin, cider. The celebration is joined by bars offering interesting cocktails and a special menu, and all this fun is accompanied by music that sounds everywhere. Well, the event is not complete without an incendiary afterparty. The Grain Store on King Street is chosen as the festival's venue. Copyright

The beginning of June is marked by a gastronomic festival revealing the secrets of gin recipes. We are talking about Wolverhampton Secret Gin Festival. All who love this strong drink and cannot imagine fun without it are invited to the significant and interesting event. Hundreds of different brands are presenting their drink, including very rare ones; besides that, visitors can expect tastings of snacks to gin. The atmosphere of fun is created by such entertainment as live music, workshops, consultations on choosing and cooking gin, tasting cocktails and craft beer, as well as a “secret” after-party. The event takes place in the same Store The Grain.
Another interesting gastronomic festival takes place in early July, and its name is very simple - Wolverhampton Festival of Food & Drink. The open-air event is held on Wulfruna Street. This is the time when a food fair opens, visitors are offered a rich entertainment program with music, dancing, mass festivities, and theatrical performances so that no one is left either hungry or unhappy.

Local residents' love for cocktails is evidenced by holding another festival devoted to them. We are talking about the Wolverhampton Cocktail Festival that falls on the beginning of August. At this time, bartenders have a great opportunity to show all their skills, while visitors can taste their cocktails.

In addition, at this time you can learn the art of cocktail making from the best bartenders from all over the world.
Wolverhampton hosts one of the most unusual holidays in the United Kingdom - the Festival of The Dead. It is connected with Halloween and is held at the same time as the famous holiday. But here it acquires a somewhat different sound - thus, dance and acrobatic groups of “skeletons” headed by the so-called “Giant Skull” walk around the city, people paint their faces to look like skeletons, and all this is accompanied by music, light show, confetti scattering, and fun. Without exaggeration, this event is in no way inferior to the Brazilian carnival, thanks to which you can get a lot of positive impressions. The parade starts at Starworks Warehouse.
In the middle of August, West Park becomes a venue for WV1FEST - a two-day music festival where you can hear many cover versions of famous songs. This is a great opportunity to enjoy high-quality music and the family-friendly atmosphere of the festival. Besides a music program, visitors will find a children's playground, the opportunity to try extreme rides, as well as taste delicious food and beer. The festival's organizers say that people of any age will find entertainment to their liking here, as they always try to surprise the audience with an interesting program.
