It’s always a good day out – and it’s free!

Details of this year’s Brownhills Canal Festival taking place this Sunday (28th June 2015) at Silver Street in Brownhills have kindly been supplied by The Clayhanger Kid himself, Brian Stringer – it’s always a good event and last year was better than ever!

Also worth checking out this year will be the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Restoration Trust who will be present.

This year the event even has a Facebook page!
