The Floating Market is making a return to Brindleyplace, Birmingham during the festive season…

In the past 10 days in my  “local ” vicinity there have been two splendid canal side events.

Floating Market After last September’s launch near Brindleyplace, the event was deemed so successful that six additional events have been organised in 2014.

There were other things beside boats.

I visited the event on 3 May, a Saturday and hence a shopping day and therefore, I imagine, less people would visit. I was right! So some realistic historical photos were possible.
