It’ll soon be time for the Brownhills Canalside Festival

Canal Festival 2014

Looks like a great event!

Details of this year’s Brownhills Canal Festival have kindly been supplied by The Clayhanger Kid himself, Brian Stringer. This yeart it’s Sunday, 29th June 2014.

Hi Bob

Just a bit of info on this years Brownhills Canal Festival…

Music will be by Spotlight productions, a Trad Jazz six piece band, and Pelsall Ladies choir.

These acts will be held together by a professional compere who will also integrate a raconteur of wonderful monologues, as well as announcing the opening ceremony and children’s art competition results.

We are also delighted to welcome the Black Country’s Ikon Gallery Boat which is a floating arts and crafts activities centre.

Mad Dom will be entertaining adults and children alike throughout the day. (Check him out online…)

In addition to the usual stalls we will have Walsall Ladies Spinners, a Birds of Prey exhibition and the Parrot rescue tent. This year we’ll also see an exhibition of woodturning.

The fire service will be based at the canoe Centre as they intend to stage some water rescue features. Sutton Canoe club will be offering their usual activities.

A local man will be providing refreshments along with our own popular cakes and bread pudding.

All this along with the usual Tombola, and numerous craft stalls.

We’ve bought 4 new gazebos so we shall have some protection if the elements are as bad as last year. We have been promised that the bridge will be cleaned and the grass cut, ready for the event which is on Sunday 29th June 10am- 4pm.

Any more developments and I’ll let you know .

There are plenty of attractions for all, and some rather fine craftsmanship on display.
