Digbeth social enterprise quarter gets set for summer festival

This, just in, from Digbeth’s Warwick Bar:

Calling social enterprises…

WARWICK BAR SUMMER FETE   SATURDAY 14 JULY 12.00-17.00

INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE AS A STALLHOLDER, PERFORMER OR VOLUNTEER

2012 marks the first year of activities at Warwick Bar. To celebrate the occasion the organisation is holding its first summer fete — a FREE family-friendly afternoon of waterside arts, music, performance and freshly cooked locally-produced food.

Ikon’s Slow Boat, Grand Union and Edible Eastside are some of the well respected tenants of Warwick Bar, so expect the best of culture, food and activities.

Warwick Bar is a development site in Digbeth which lies ten minutes walk to the east of Birmingham city centre. Surrounded on three sides by the historic Grand Union Canal, Digbeth Branch Canal and the River Rea, the area was home to a complex of factories and workshops and now provides accommodation for a rich mix of heavy industry to arts and service sector agencies.

Social enterprises can exhibit, sell and take part for as little as £10 a stall! Warwick Bar is also looking for volunteer helpers, performers and stewards for the event.
