Vlog 271: Fun and Games

On Saturday 25th June 2022, around 80 narrowboats took part in a colourful and noisy parade through Birmingham to mark the city hosting this year’s Commonwealth Games. This is my record of that day. You may also have spotted I did a ‘live’ broadcast during the event, this can be seen here: https://youtu.be/hCFNVXvf4sA

Please note: to prevent copyright strikes against this video, I have had to replace the background sound as we went through the centre of the city (there was a lot of music playing, which resulted in a copyright claim on my live broadcast). I trust this minor but necessary adjustment does not spoil your enjoyment of the video. Tough luck if it does.
