Book to see The Muppets Christmas Carol: Film With Live Orchestra at Symphony Hall

Monday 4th December, 7pm
Symphony Hall, Broad Street, B1 2EA

For those celebrating Christmas, the time has nearly come to put up the tree (if it’s already up, you’re too keen!), get a box of Quality Street in and watch some festive films.

And why not make the most of it? Dubbed the ultimate festive escape, Symphony Hall are presenting a chance to hop off the sofa and see an absolute classic on the big screen, featuring its music score performed live to the film by a hand-picked ensemble of star performers.

This was a favourite of mine as a kid, so I look forward to attending myself! Book your tickets below.

Picture This

Bank House in Birmingham on a foggy night.

Jamie is an award-winning bug photographer (check out those close ups!) but also snaps Brum on occasion.

I love this shot for its futuristic framing and contrasting tones. It’d make a great album cover!

Locarno nightclub in Birmingham during the 1970s

Birmingham's pubs & clubs of the '70s & '80s; a look back

Were you a Brum Raver back in the day and fancy reminiscing on the good times? Or perhaps you wish to explore the spots your parents used to party at?

Journey with us back in time for five minutes of nostalgia; the signage, drinks, outfits and hair are as you’d expect and the music an apt addition to the moment.

If this isn’t enough for you, watch part 2 here!
