Do This

Get tickets to The Twang's Christmas gig

Friday 22nd December, 7pm
O2 Institute, 78 Digbeth, B5 6DY

An annual tradition amongst the local indie scene returns this year as The Twang take to the stage at the O2 Institute for the homecoming leg of their Winter tour.

Debut album, Love It When I Feel Like This was hugely influential and marked them out as one of the most important bands of the noughties. (Check out The Streets remix of Either Way for further listening!)

Local boys The Assist join them for what is bound to be a special evening. This date was added to the tour due to the first Brum date selling out, so tickets are in high demand. Be quick!

Get me in!

Picture This

Images of people taken by Tom Parkins around Birmingham.

Capturing the beauty in the mundane; these stills from Tom Parkins gracefully explore the complexity of each individual and their surroundings. 

Our lives are linked in many subtle ways and despite no obvious ties between each shot and subject, I can’t help feel a connection between them all. A great set of photos, Tom!


Consider This

The old 1960s Bullring site in Birmingham

Watch this Bullring redevelopment timeline video

Put together using archive footage from both Central News and BBC Midlands Today, this video offers a look back at the controversial redevelopment of the Bullring site between 1998 and 2003.

In a city centre that never stays still, this project marked a significant step in Birmingham’s journey from workshop of the world, through talk shop of the world, to being a world of shops.
