I’ve just noticed that the Brownhills annual canal festival is taking place this Sunday, 27th June, from 10am to 4pm. It takes place on Silver Street, by the canal opposite Tesco. There will be the usual mix of stalls, activities and attractions, and a good time is set to be had by all, especially so considering the fine weather predicted. It’s a great event and a cracking family occasion for all ages. Get your backsides over there!
I’d just like to point out to the organisers that there’s absolutely no publicity about this event on the web, and as yet, I’ve seen nothing in the local media. A search for ‘Brownhills Canal Festival 2010‘ turns up very little, and a search of the Walsall Council website turns up even less – their events calendar for Brownhills appears to end last Christmas. More worryingly, a Google search turns up second hit an erroneous and incorrect, somewhat alarmist Express & Star article questioning whether the event will go ahead at all. Publicity, folks, otherwise it’ll die like other Brownhills events. I know some of the dedicated folks behind this fine event read the blog, how about dropping me a line in future and I’ll publicise your stuff here. It’s all about Brownhills, after all.
