The Birmingham Canal Navigations mark their 250th birthday in November, and we're joining in with the celebrations! Join Roundhouse Birmingham, Canal & River Trust, and UK Knights for an interactive evening "walkshop" of canal photography and light painting.

The session will consist of a relaxed photo walk to a scenic location on the Birmingham canals, just outside of the city centre.

Using a range of simple techniques and equipment, we'll learn how to create photographic art with light on the canal side.
The session will be delivered by UK Knights - you can view their work at Insta: Uk_knights
