Anyway I know we can rely on Our Bob so I just thought I’d fill you in on the programme we have arranged on the stage which will be sited near to the bridge.

  • 10:10  Dr Brian Dakin will be regailing us with tales and monologues for 40 minutes, and I’m told he is brilliant.
  • 10:55   The official opening speech.
  • 11:00   A performance by the Spotlite theatre.
  • 12:00  Trad Jazz with Barbara’s All Stars.
  • 12:45 Winners or the childrens Art Competition will be announced.
  • 1:15      Trad Jazz again with Barbara’s All Stars.
  • 2:15     Pelsall Ladies Choir.

Tesco have donated a trophy and prize money for the Canoe Club to organise a race which they hope will become an annual event, but Sutton Canoe Club are in charge of that so I’m not sure what form it will take.

The weather has been ordered and if delivered as promised we should have a good day.

Cheers Bob and bring your camera.
Brian

Brownhills Canal Festival – June 26th 2011

Brownhills certainly chose the weather for the Festival!

Another fleeting visit to a Canal Festival – a quick extra short walk for my hound before shooting off to Chasewater (Brownhills Bob and Oakparkrunner have their bikes, Ivo Peters had his Bentley, I’ve got a Dobe!)This way home, Dad!

There was plenty going on to keep people happy, including the Town Crier (should it have a ‘Y’ or an ‘I’?).  It was quite early when I was there, well before eleven, but a good number of visitors were in evidence and the boat trips were already running.
Not too many boats but everyone seemed to be enjoying their day in the sun – a better Sunday than the Pelsall do a couple of weeks ago!
There will be more pics on flickr – just click flickr in the blogroll.
