Roundhouse Rendezvous: Walking and Writing Workshop
Need some inspiration to get writing? Want to explore hidden Birmingham?
Look no further than our series of creative walks, bike rides and canoe trips developed in partnership with the Canal & River Trust, National Trust, Birmingham Roundhouse, British Canoeing and Big Birmingham Bikes, and delivered by five fantastic writers.
Take a towpath tour along to the Jewellery Quarter, stopping to explore hidden gems of the canalside, and wander back to The Roundhouse for a writing workshop led by Mandy Ross (10am-1pm) or Kurly McGeachie (2pm-5pm).
First head out on foot, by bike or in a canoe, then use your adventure to help you write. Each activity will last for around an hour and the workshops for approximately an hour and a half.
Drinks are provided free of charge but please bring a snack to sustain you.
Suitable for adults and children aged 8 and over. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
