Slow Boat, Brewmaster Bridge, Brindleyplace, Birmingham B1 2JB

Join artists, including Angolan singer/songwriter Ben Pathy, for music and song during fun workshops aimed at giving an insight into traditional instrumentation, vocals, music and songs from their native countries. Open to all ages.

Looping the Loop (2017–2019) takes place between the canal and community spaces in Birmingham’s Ladywood district. A socially responsive programme, Slow Boat offers a vehicle for greater understanding of the experiences of refugees and new arrivals to the city through artist residencies with Ming de Nasty and Celebrating Sanctuary.

Slow Boat is accessible by wheelchair via a ramp and lift and crew are on hand to provide additional assistance for foot passengers boarding the boat. We advise visitors to call 0121 248 0708 to discuss any access requirements before booking.

Please book online or call Ikon Shop on 0121 248 0711. Online booking closes at 12pm on Wednesday 11 July.
