Last weekend we saw Birmingham’s biggest arts festival return to showcase the vibrancy and cultural diversity of the city.
Birmingham Weekender took place over 3 days spanning across the city with events taking place in Eastside Park, the Bullring, Victoria Square and even on the city’s trams.
We were proud to be co-producer of this year’s Culture Catwalk. The stage saw a wealth of talent from all over Birmingham showcase what they felt it meant to be a Brummie.
Emerging acts and artists attracted the crowds with a variety of singing, rapping and dancing. Acts who performed included Handsworth Community Choir, Jumprov and even a dance piece from our very own students from BOA (Birmingham Ormiston Academy).
The entire city was filled with a diverse range of events as some highlights from the weekend include Colours of Birmingham Parade led by Harminder the mechanical elephant, which filled the streets with colour and culture. Clash of Drums brought Eastside Park to life with an explosion of noise and fireworks and Hans Raj, the world-renowned Punjabi singer closed the weekend by bringing audiences to their feet to celebrate a successful Birmingham Weekender.
