The scene at 2019's Brownhills Canal Festival

LHCRT communications, events and membership director Christine Howles explained why the Trust was organising the Festival.


“We are bringing back the Brownhills Canal Festival after a few years’ absence, with the last event hosted by Birmingham Canal Navigations Society in 2019.

“We were approached by Brownhills resident (and LHCRT member) Malcolm Littler, who asked if we could help arrange the festival

“As Brownhills is at the top end of the Lichfield Canal it made sense for us to help out, promote Brownhills as a canal town, raise awareness of the link the Lichfield Canal will bring to the canal network and to Brownhills, and create a fun weekend for everyone. Traditionally held in the summer, we have chosen September for the event.”


There will be floating traders, trade stalls and charity stalls, details of which can be found at the LHCRT website

Admission is free to the event, at Silver Street, Brownhills, Walsall, WS8 6DZ.
