This weekend is Birmingham Weekender – Friday 25th, Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th September.
Over the 3 days you can see a range of street theatre, performances, public art and much more. Or even get involved yourself in the Open Draw walk and sketch or workshops including the Haka and Day of the Dead faceprinting. It’s for all ages and part of the Super September offer in Birmingham which sees the Rugby World Cup in Brum, the unveiling of John Lewis’s new store and the opening of Grand Central Station (or the new New Street in old money).
For residents of Kingstanding, Stockland Green, Tyburn and Erdington you can get hold of a free daysaver bus ticket to take you into the city this Sunday to enjoy some of the final days events.
That right Free travel for free events!
All we ask in return is that you take a picture while you are there and post it to our Cafe Arts Facebook Page or tweet to @CAFEartsforum with a comment of what you think about what you’ve seen. Maybe a picture of something you like, or a selfie of you and something you’re watching or doing at the Birmingham Weekender. We don’t mind what the comment says about your experience but we do want you to tell us about what you see and do. You can post more than one photo/comment and you can do it live from your smart phone or later than night or week – just by the 4th October.
£50 Prize up for grabs!
Yes for the best photo/comment on or tagged to our Cafe Arts Facebook Page or Twitter profile. So that’s an incentive – we will select the best post and award £50 cash prize to a local community group of your choice as a thank you for getting involved in the weekend.
There is so much to see and do but if you’re not sure where to go, what to pick up want company you can come along with one of our organised groups.
Or make your own way there and do your own thing but access a special performance of Accidental Brummie at Birmingham Rep at 2pm on the Sunday – it would be great for the whole audience to be people from our 4 wards.
