In 2018 B-ROW will be painting Birmingham’s canals red and white in a flurry of Santa’s. Our big event will be happening on 16th December where last year we had over 100 paddling Santas descend on the the city’s canals but this is your opportunity to get involved and spread the love!!
Come and make Birmingham smile and spread some Christmas joy.
Go on escape the Xmas shopping for 1 day (there’s 364 other days to do it).
Do you fancy getting trying something new and seeing the city from a different angle? Come and try a Kayak Tour
Come for a festive tour along the canal into Brindley place and under Broad Street and finally admire the fantastic shapes of the Cube from below. Your guide will also fill you in on some of the history of the canals and some of the unique features of the canals in Birmingham.
No experience is necessary, we will take you through the basics and by the time we get to the Barclaycard arena you will be paddling confidently past the other tourists wishing they were on the water!
We are fully insured and qualified to British Canoeing instructor level and have lots of experience instructing people professionally!!
