I have another request here and a bit of a plug from The Clayhanger Kid himself – Brian Stringer – who is again organising the Brownhills Canalside Festival for 2015, this year taking place on Sunday 28th June.
Brian is now sorted for musical entertainment, following a tremendous response to a request for acts here on the blog – you guys really did us proud, there.
Brian is currently looking for fresh stalls and attractions for the popular festival to compliment the regulars. You could be a crafter, selling bric-a-brac, or exhibiting your artwork or other collection. Maybe you’re a charity, or local business who’d like to reach out to a lot of people quickly and easily?
I’m on the earhole again!
We need some fresh stalls at the canal festival this year as well as the regulars, so I wondered if an appeal on the blog would bring a few extra in?
For anyone selling stuff to raise funds it’s only £15 per pitch, or to stage an exhibition of your work or collection it’s free.
Anyone interested need only fill in a form which can be obtained by calling 01543 361144 or contact me and I’ll sort it.
It may be a bit early to plug the canal festival but I thought I’d put you in the picture so you can give it a go when you feel ready.
