Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Are you going to Brum-borough fayre?

buntingTomorrow (4th July) two lovely festivals are taking place in Birmingham:

The Kings Heath Festival will feature both a vintage clothes fayre at the Hare and Hounds and vintage cars. Poplar Road and York Road will be pedestrianised for the day. Their lovely independent shops such as People, Polar Bear, Top Banana and Maison Mayci will be open and accompanied by an array of stalls (including jewellery, food, clothes and bizarrely, driving advice and diabetes testing?!). There will be musicians and activities for all ages throughout the day.  A catering area will be hosted by the Kitchen Garden Café which is bound to be delicious! Further down the high street All Saint’s Church will also be having their summer fete.

If that wasn’t enough for one day, the Jewellery Quarter are also having their own festival. It will be celebrating the legacy of Birmingham’s ownMatthew Boulton and the Jewellery Quarter itself. It will feature a Jewellery makers fayre, and the inaugural 24 Carrot Farmers’ Market at the Big Peg, Warstone Lane. There will be live music and activities for all ages. A free hourly Vintage Bus service will take visitors from the City Centre to the Quarter.
