Today is Digbeth is Good’s second birthday! Please join me for celebration drinkies and a slice of the above cake, lovingly made by Mrs Rawlins. We’ll be in The Spotted Dog from 6pm this evening.
On Monday evening in The Spotted Dog there’s some Filum fun in store. To mark June being Gypsy Roma Traveller Month we’ll be watching the documentary Pavee Ceilidh – Irish Travellers talk about their history, which will be introduced by Dr Scott Phillips of the Irish Traveller Movement in Britain. Join us in The Spotted Dog, Warwick Street at 8pm this Monday 28th June for some interesting viewing, free tea and buns and lively discussion.
Until recently I was unaware that we’re in Gypsy Roma Traveller Month but do check the website out as there’s still some great events and exhibitions in store, such as the finals of the Travellers Got Talent competition in Stowemarket on 9th July and more locally, Nigel Dickinson’s Roma Beyond Borders exhibition at The Lighthouse, Wolverhampton until 13th August.
So that’s Friday and Monday with me firmly planted in my second home The Spotted Dog. I’m planning to spend a little of the time in between checking out the MOM (Meeting Of Minds) exhibition at the Sauce Gallery, Custard Factory. I’m also hoping to sample the delights of the newly opened Cleary’s on Moseley Street, the phoenix to rise from the ashes of the lovely pub that was demolished along with some back-to-backs on Cheapside to make way for a barren building site. Grrrr….
