CANAL boat fans will be flocking to Stourbridge Navigation Trust's popular annual open weekend later this month.

The free event will take place at The Bonded Warehouse in Canal Street, Stourbridge, over the weekend of Saturday October 19 and Sunday October 20.

Around 50 narrowboats will be making their way to the Stourbridge Arm Canal for the event which will run from 10am to 5pm on both days.

There will also be a craft fair in The Bonded Warehouse and a variety of stalls in Canal Street plus a display of vehicles and steam engines in the street and on the wharf, and a number of children’s rides.

Refreshments will be available and there will also be a beer tent.

Tickets for Santa’s Yuletide boat trips on the Stourbridge Canal will also be available to buy.
