I’m pretty excited that Flatpack and Fierce festivals will be taking place over the same week in March next year. Fierce will run from 22-27 March and Flatpack from 24-27 March. Birmingham, and particularly Digbeth/Eastside will be buzzing over that week! This year the two festivals will be sharing a festival ‘hub’ which will be catered for by Companis. Over the past year I have sampled a few Companis creations and I can safely say festival-goers will be in for a treat. The cakes they baked for the last Flatpack were absolutely divine!
Expect film in unusual places, live soundtracks, workshops, installations, offbeat family screenings, public interventions, wild parties and a vintage mobile cinema which will roam across the city.
The full programme for both festivals will be announced in late February. Keep an eye on their websites for updates.
