Do This

Attend Kings Heath Artisan Market

Sunday 9th July, 10am - 4pm
York Road, Kings Heath, B14 7RZ

Taking place every second Sunday of the month on the liveliest road in B14, Kings Heath Artisan Market returns this weekend and we’re very excited to share that we’ll be making our first appearance there!

It’s been ages since we’ve done an in-person event, so pop down, say hey and browse the stalls of some other brilliant local traders too. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and making new friends.

Find out more.

Ideal skate shop advert from the 1990's

These behind the scenes shots of a ‘90s Ideal advert truly capture the raw energy and rebellious spirit of the era. 

Ideal have been supporting local and international skateboarding culture for over thirty years; we're so lucky to have them still standing strong in Digbeth!

Birmingham Outboard Meeting at Salford Bridge Reservoir in 1952

Watch this short clip from a Birmingham Outboard meeting in 1952

Salford Bridge Reservoir in Aston became a racecourse for speedboat enthusiasts back in 1952 for the Midland Hydroplane Meeting. This video documents twelve boats competing whilst punters watch from the banks of the water.

Check out the quirky boat names, extremely analogue timekeeping equipment and dandy racing suits - not very waterproof! Quite a snapshot in time. 😅
