Beer, Ballads and Boats
Sat 1 April 2017, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
Join local historian Mark Charnley and Broadside Balladress Jennifer Reid on this exploration of the history and hospitality of the watering places of Barton and Patricroft. Visiting several establishments along the way Jennifer will perform the ballads of the labourers and canal folk that worked along our waterway. Mark will tell the story of the origins and colourful past of the pubs and there will be a chance to purchase refreshments on the way. You'll also be encouraged to share your memories of the area and the canal.
