Eve of the Dead @The Ruin

Birmingham now has its own little Budapest Style Pub in Digbeth called “The Ruin ”

It’s got bare walls, basic miss matched furniture and it’s brilliant.  

Although its only been open a couple of weeks it has already also has hosted it’s first Halloween “Eve of the Dead ” Spoken word and music event………oh ok, I organised that for them and it was really good 

Classic acts like phantom of the Opera to the Raven to spooky poems. ..to comedy horror films to……..umm blues music , travis covers, bohemian based poems ….. 

 Ummmm, halloween acts are thin on the ground on 31st October so one has to …ummm

So much more. ..

I wanted somewhere new to explore not that far away. Using Google maps I soon choose an area of unexplored territory  (for me that is 😉) An area called Hartlebuy, it fitted all the tick boxes, a castle, out in the country, pubs and a garden centre cafe that looked promising

We never got further than the garden centre! Whitlenge Garden Ctre is more than a garden centre, they have gone to town with their imagination. .fairies, gnomes, a wonderful country garden cafe and then the gardens. .

For a modest entry fee of ÂŁ3.50 each we were taken on a journey into all things spooky.  Yes. .it was Halloween themed,  they did a brilliant job and it kept us entertained for ages and ages. .brilliant fun
