I have some excellent news for Brownhills folk and those who like canal boats and waterway life – the successful and sadly missed Brownhills Canalside Festival is being revived in 2019 by the Birmingham Canal Navigations Society who are planning to make it a weekend event.
It will take place over the weekend of 18-19th May 2019 and planning is in the early stages, but Brenda Ward from the BCN Society has been in touch to ask me to share the good news and appeal for stalls and traders who may be interested in having a pitch.
Brenda is looking for fresh stalls and attractions for the popular festival to compliment the boat rides and other attractions. 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?
You can find out more by visiting the event Facebook page here, and posting an enquiry there or mail Brenda directly at email@example.comI will keep you updated as we get more news and things take shape. Please do support this, it’s great to see it return and I for one love a good canal event.
My thanks to the BCN and Brenda for taking this on. Wonderful stuff.

Just to keep you informed The BCN (Birmingham Canal Navigations) Society will be holding a Canal Festival in Brownhills over the weekend of 18th & 19th May 2019.
As soon as we have finalised details I will let you know but in the meantime people may like to be aware of it and note the date & anyone who would like a stall can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will take on a similar format to the Brownhills Community Festival the organisers of this past event have been informed and are in favour.
I’ll be in touch all the best
