Anchors Aweigh! (Saturday 22nd)

Saturday 22nd March, 2014

BM&AG Main Entrance | 11:00

‘Anchors Aweigh!’ charts a meandering course through the backwaters, coves and inlets of Birmingham-on-Sea, sifting through the flotsam and jetsam of the city’s various nautical connections.

Our famously landlocked city has nevertheless formed nautical clubs, sailed single-handedly round the world, celebrated aquatic legends of ancient and modern history, created precision maritime instruments, adopted the emblem of the mermaid for its university and the anchor for its assaying office. Discover your Birmingham sea legs on this 90-minute guided tour with Ben Waddington, washing up at the Anchor Inn, Digbeth where we will trade unlikely scar-yarns and splice the mainbrace with a ration of rum.
