Was it any good there Keith? I thought a about a trip up but the hassle of parking put me off.

Don't you just love free entry? If it gets popular I guess they will start to charge.

The first room was dismal but there were three other 'rooms' one of which was quite large and a number of outside stalls selling all manner of things,there are plenty of back streets without parking restrictions but it helps if you know your way round,working in Digbeth for four years was an advantage. I'd say good,better than the 'Big Brum Fair'. ;D ;D
