Birmingham Weekender returned this summer with over 100 free events to enjoy at Bullring & Grand Central, the New Street Station concourse, Birmingham Markets and 1000 Trades Square.

It was an awe-inspiring arts festival featuring a dynamic programme of events by world-class artists from across the West Midlands, plus invited national and international companies. Showcasing exciting new commissions, roaming and pop-up street theatre, family-friendly workshops and vibrant installations, all animating the region’s premier shopping destination.

Highlights included Brum’s Big Splash – a 60 metre slip and slide installed on Central Street, inspired by Luke Jerram’s Park and Slide in Bristol in 2014.
