Birmingham Weekender returns in 2017 with three great days out for all the family.

This free weekend festival sees Birmingham city-centre filled with performances from world-class musicians, dancers and artists.

This is the chance to see Birmingham’s major arts organisations alongside shining lights from the city’s independent scene, plus invited international artists.

By day, we bring the streets alive with free performances, music, street theatre and plenty of opportunities for all the family to join in. As the sun sets, the atmosphere changes with an after dark fire-lit procession, drumming spectacular, late-night dance party and light show.

Best of all, most of it’s free.
Join us for a festival in a weekend!
