See The Clause headline their biggest show to date

Friday 23rd December, 7pm
O2 Institute, 78 Digbeth, B5 6DY

Since signing to Universal Music Group in 2019, The Clause have cemented themselves as local heroes in Birmingham's indie music scene. Over the last few years, each hometown gig has required a room bigger than the last; from humble beginnings at The Sunflower Lounge in 2016, this Friday they play the main room at The Institute!

Expect to hear anthemic choruses, captivating riffs and tantalising guitar licks at this unmissable show.

Christmas lights up on New Street in Birmingham, 1963

The warm nostalgia of seeing Christmas lights up in the streets hits me every year without fail. I fondly remember going to see the lights get turned on at Millennium Point as a child, and being captivated by the magic of it each time.

This shot, taken on New Street in Christmas 1963, reminds me of sitting in the back seat on journeys home after school, debating with myself whether I’d been good enough for Santa to pay me a visit that year! 😆

Birmingham Town Hall covered in a blanket of snow

Watch Birmingham - A City In Snow

A cinematic escape, shot beautifully by Sparky Jones, portrays the city asleep; forcefully ground to a halt by a blanket of snow. This short video is such a peaceful watch, and certainly got me in the mood for the Christmas break. Seeing the city from this perspective is mesmerising! 

Give yourself two minutes to watch it, we guarantee it’ll help sooth the stress of the Christmas rush.

Watch here.
