I see the folk behind the annual Brownhills Canal Festival have really got it together this year, and are really having a positive publicity push. They’re even got a website/blog thing with a great gallery and information at http://brownhillscanalfestival.wordpress.com/…
I shall attend, as usual, haven’t missed a year yet, and I recommend you have a look too. It’s free and there’s loads to do, so what’s not to love?
See you there!
As you can see, this year’s Jubilee Celebration Brownhills Canal Festival will be bigger and better than ever!
It takes place on Sunday June 24th at the waterside and on the old market place at Silver Street, Brownhills, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
(the postcode for the site is WS8 6DZ, so bang it in your satnav)
It’s sure to be a great day out for all the family, and entrance is free!
This year we’ve got pirate actors, refreshments, children’s rides, the clown, live music, almost 30 stalls booked so far. Canal boat trips, canoe lessons, the historic bus, local singers, police and fire services, heratige canal boats, tombola, face painting, jewellery stall, Russian crafts, raffle, wood turning display, ice cream, pick a bag, the royal British legion, Frank Brown the canal artist, army and air force cadets.
This year we will be using the old market site and providing crossing patrols throughout the day.
There will also be some as yet unconfirmed attractions.
Two street theatre walkabout acts will be appearing in and around the High Street on the Saturday before (23 June) as a teaser for the festival so look out for a deep sea diver and a giant lobster!
