Do This

Buy tickets for Tea-light house and dumplings at Blow Water Cafe

Wednesday 11th October, 7-9pm
4B Heathfield Road, King's Heath, B14 7DB

As well as serving authentic East Asian food, Blow Water are known for hosting unique, intimate events in their B14 space and if you're yet to attend one, we’re giving you a heads up for this cosy night taking place in a couple of weeks.

Katie Robbins is giving ticket holders an opportunity to build their own tea light house using porcelain paper clay, whilst snacking on delicious dumplings freshly made from the Blow Water kitchen.

If you’re ready to get in the mood for the winter months ahead be sure to grab a ticket. There’s very limited spots available, so be quick!

Book here.

There’s something very Star Wars about this one!


Consider This

Front cover for Stephen Pennell's debut novel, Gangsters, Geezers and Mods

Read this review of Stephen Pennell's Gangsters, Geezers and Mods, a working class Birmingham tale

It’s rare for a Brummie to find themselves and their surroundings immortalised through modern literature, but Pennell’s debut novel does just that and this review by local historian, Carl Chinn, goes a long way to justifying the hype that surrounded its release three years ago.

I see this review as a friendly recommendation, from Brummie to Brummie. ‘I can’t believe it’s set in Aston!’ I pondered whilst reading. I hope this article serves as both a conversation starter amongst friends and an incentive to read the full novel, which is available here and definitely worth a dive into.

Read the review.
