Do This

Attend Symphonic Jazz Sessions: A Fiddler's Tale, performed by CBSO

Thursday 13th July, 6pm
Hockley Social Club, 60 Hampton Street, B19 3LU

Leave Brum behind for a night this week; transport yourself to an otherworldly New York as world class local musicians lead you on a twisted 
journey that will stay with you long after the performance ends.

Created in the late '90s by the unfathomably influential Wynton Marsalis as a ground breaking collaboration between the worlds of classical music and Jazz, A Fiddler's Tale is a live performance unlike anything you're likely to have experienced before.

If you want a break from the norm and are open to exploring new avenues in music and performance, this'll be the best £10 you spend for a long time.

I'm down!

Lights in the street in Digbeth, Birmingham

These lights in Digbeth have developed iconic status in recent years, but this shot taken by Ross Jukes in 2021 truly brings out the magic in them. 

I’m reminded of a final scene in a coming of age film; you can imagine the protagonist walking down the middle as the end credits roll up from the bottom!

An image taken by Pogus Caesar form his exhibiton 'From Jamaica Row'

Read this profile piece on Pogus Caesar

This article, first published in February 2006, explores British artist, archivist and author Pogus Caesar’s birth and upbringing in St. Kitts, why he moved to Birmingham and how his family got by in Sparkbrook sharing one room and an outside toilet with 6 other families!

The opening of the OOM Gallery in Moseley was the hot topic, with his then latest exhibition ‘From Jamaica Row’ premiering in the new space. This work explored the building of the modern Bullring through several hundred images, taken over a three year period.  

A unique and inspiring story from one of the city’s greatest exports!
