A musical history of the Birmingham Canal Navigations will be the highlight of Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust’s Autumn Show.

The Birmingham Lads tells the story of the beginnings of the BCN, its rise to prosperity and its effect on Birmingham and the wider area.

In a similar vein, folk-based band The Light Side’s repertoire puts the emphasis on canal and other watery songs.

The Autumn Show will be held at Whittington Village Hall on Friday, November 16, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

The bar will be open from 6.30pm with supper served at 7pm and the show starting at 8pm. A grand prize draw will be held in the interval.

Tickets cost £15.50 inclusive of show and supper.
