A complete list of all BCNS events planned

(with the bonus of the some non BCNS events.)

We have revised our web presence, using the pages for a diary of events, and for static pages and news events.  All events have a Return to main site link to (surprisingly enough) return you to the main site.

    Bonfire Rally 2014

    Bonfire Rally at the Engine Arm Junction, at the top of Smethwick locks.  

    If you are not coming by boat, head to Smethwick Enterprise Centre, Rolfe Street, Smethwick B66 2AR.  It is only a hundred yards or so from Smethwick Rolfe Street station. 

    Click this link to see where it is on Google Maps 

    Real ale, fireworks, live music and a barbeque - a good weekend out.

    Everyone welcome, - boaters, local residents and everyone else who would like to see a cracking good firework display.

    The Society AGM will be on the Friday evening, with a sausage casserole afterwords (booking on on the entry form). 

    Unlike earlier years, we are not running a barbeque on the Saturday.
