Over three evenings, 14-16 February, Love Stirchley More will provide an alternative Valentine’s experience across Stirchley; a mini festival celebrating and demonstrating love which have been made for Stirchley and hosted by businesses there.
Events range from Get Your Noodle Out a pop-up heart-warming noodle restaurant from Loaf and film fun on matters of the heart courtesy from Stirchley Happenings and Kino10. There will be a carnival-spirited launch procession from Bournville Railway Station to Stirchley’s High Street, a chance to sample Stirchley Sauce made from Love Apples i.e. tomatoes (perhaps a good replacement for HP now that it is no longer made in Brum) and even a number of exclusively designed free permanent tattoos! (see images above.)
Several artists have also been chosen to work with local shop-keepers and community. They will provide a series of installations, performances and interventions across Stirchley during the festival as well as free drop-in workshops and events.
