Camping by Colmore

A couple of months ago I took part in an arts and crafts market run by Handmade and the Colmore Business District.

Market season starts

The Christmas market season began this week with the Stirchley Market and continues at Moseley today. And then it takes over my life. Next week in particular is pretty crazy. From Wednesday to Friday I’m at the special Handmade Market in the grounds of St Philip’s Cathedral, by Colmore Row. I quite like the idea [...]
