Brindleyplace Dragonboat race 2016

This year’s Dragonboat Races at Brindleyplace is going to be bigger and better than ever before, as it also includes a huge festival that’s going to be filled with plenty for all ages to enjoy.

From dance workshops, a petting zoo, delicious food and drink at the food market, it’s set to be a fantastic day out in the heart of the city that won’t break the bank.

Pizza House | Dig Brew | Saturday

HyperFocal: 0

Dig Brew has been working on a pretty cool event that’s kicking off this Saturday, and we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a huge hit with pizza lovers across the city. So if you don’t have any plans this Saturday, then how does free pizza sounds to you? We’ve caught your attention now, haven’t we!

Here’s exactly how it works: tickets cost £15 and can be redeemed as a bar tab at the event and free pizza is served by the slice. All you have to do to get your hands on the cheesy goodness is buy a drink at the bar where you’ll then be handed a token that you exchange for a slice – it’s as simple as that!

Expect a range of tasty toppings, live music from the Dig Brew staff and a great Saturday out at one of the city’s fantastic independents. Book your tickets here.
