Floating Market Comes to Local Waterside – Amended

Another closely kept secret has surfaced!

From tomorrow (25 September) to next Sunday a collection of canal boats will gather on the local canal, coming from far and wide.

This has now been revised as being from Friday (27 September) to next Sunday and runs from 10am to 6pm each day. Please note that the Canal & River Trust website is out of date stating it runs on Saturday and Sunday 28 – 29 Sep 2013 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.

They will be selling their wares from the boats and there should be a lot of variety – craft jewellery, pottery, food, canal objects, and others currently unknown.

The boats will be moored on both sides of the canal between the NIA car park and Symphony court and stretching from Sheepcote Street bridge to the next bridge outside the National Sealife Centre plus some round the corner towards the Waterside/Symphony Hall bridge.

This is billed as the UK’s largest  floating market by the Canal & River Trust – they beckon you to “Join in the fun as Birmingham’s waterfront comes alive with visitors, traders and all the fun of the fair.”

Chairman of the Canal & River Trust, Tony Hales, is to open the event but I haven’t a time for this – so C&RT obviously consider it as high-profile.
