Come along to this year’s tea-mendous Balsall Heath Carnival which will be held in Pickwick Park, St. Paul’s Road. The ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ themed event will have something to appeal to everyone. There will be a wide variety of stalls selling fancy goods and food. The Local History Society in conjunction with OPNOCS will be running a tea tent especially for older people, Balsall Heath Children’s Centre will be providing activities for the younger visitors and for those in between there will be quad bikes and fair rides.

Entertainment on the main stage (between 12.00 – 4.00) will include a special ‘Balsall Heath’s got Talent’ spot, so if you are a budding performer contact Clive Philips to book yourself a slot.
