BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND

Post by timillustrator » Mon Jan 04, 2016 6:47 pm

START: 10:30am, Duddeston railway station, Duddeston Mill Road, Duddeston, Birmingham B7 4ST. Trains run from New Street every 15 minutes, Buses - numbers 14, 55, 56, 66 & 94 stop outside and run from Birmingham CIty Centre. We have very kindly been given permission to draw inside the Wing Yip Superstore, this is about 15 minutes walk from the station at 375 Nechells Park Road, Nechells, Birmingam B7 5NT and we will aim to get there by 11:00. If you are driving it is easiest to park at the Wing Yip but please don't start sketching until 11:00 when we will meet the management.

Half way break the Wing Wah Restaurant on the site. They do a buffet lunch at a reasonable price but are OK if some people just want a drink (from past experience this is unlikely (they do cake as well)).

FINISH: 4 pm, St Joseph's Church, Thimblemill Road, Nechells, Birmingham B7 5HT. The church will be opening specially for us to draw inside this lovely building (designed by Edward Pugin) or in the cemetery (laid out and walls designed by AWN Pugin) if it's not raining. The church have also generously given us permission to use their meeting room where there will be tea and coffee provided (donations welcomed).

Thanks Mark, I think the church worked well in that format - it is on a hill. The running was the cold, nothing would dry.
