Outdoor Terrace

To celebrate Black History Month the Canal & River Trust and Binks Yard are inviting people down to the canalside to enjoy a celebration of black artists and performers, by the water.


See the city from a completely different perspective in a Canadian canoe, or from a trip onboard one of Megan & Tinks’ narrowboats. If staying on dry land is your thing there will be DJ sets, live music, gospel choir, spoken word performances, African drumming and Reggaerobics.



This event is free and open to all. Donations are welcome on the day to support future community initiatives. Get your free tickets today!
