Delph Stables at the Nine Locks in Brierley Hill will host its first ever ‘Carols on The Canal’ Christmas carol and crafting event on Saturday 3rd December.

Taking place on Saturday 3rd, the event will see Canal & River Trust staff and volunteers put on crafting activities and Christmas decoration making, free hot drinks and mince pies, as well as children from Brierley Hill Primary School treating locals to a series of Christmas songs. 

Local councillor Adam Davies, who has been working with the Canal & River Trust and Brierley Hill Primary to organise the event, said:

“It’s so great that we’re able to invite local people to Delph Stables for this relatively small but truly special Christmas event.

“The volunteers passionately give their time looking after our canals throughout the year and can’t wait to welcome people to the Stables on the 3rd. Right at the top of the iconic Nine Locks, we’re hoping it will be the perfect location for a really local start to Christmas.”

People can also find out about the history of Delph Stables, a grade II listed building,  thought to be the last intact canal-side stable block in the Black Country. The event will follow on from the Brierley Hill town centre Christmas light switch on which is taking place at 5pm on the Moor Centre.

Doors at Delph Stables will be open for craft making and hot drinks from 5:30pm and the children will begin singing at 6pm. No parking will be available at the stables, so attendees are advised to travel by foot.
