Picture This

A birds eye view of Birmingham New Street Station, lit up at night.

The development of Birmingham’s architectural landscape over the last twenty years is admirable. New Street Station is a symbol of the constant evolution; set back amongst the skyline, this part of the structure is rarely visible from such an angle. 

The lighting makes it look like something from outer space! A great shot by @toumaii3.


Consider This

DJ Andrew Weatherall behind the decks in Snobs, Birmingham in 1995.

Watch this short film documenting a night out in Snobs from 1995

The longevity of one of the city’s most infamous nightclubs is impressive and this 15 minutes of nostalgia back its case for being one of the best, particularly back in 1995.

With the late DJ Andrew Weatherall on the decks, arguably at his peak during a residency at Snobs, this night looked like one not to miss.

The freedom of nights out in the ‘90s is amusing to watch; I’ve never heard so many compliments given to Brum by non-Brummies in such a short space of time. It must have been the alcohol talking! 😆

Watch here.
