Do This

Attend the Candlelight Christmas show at the Botanical Gardens

Thursday 29th December, 6:30pm and 8:30pm
Westbourne Road, B15 3TR

Surrounded by candlelight, watching a string quartet perform Christmas songs from all of our favourite festive films in Birmingham’s (arguably) most beautiful spot - need we say more? 

(We can’t guarantee snow as pictured, but that really would make it perfect!)

Picture This

The Garrison Tavern, painted in the 1990s by Arthur Lockwood. 

I love this, it reminds me of a George Shaw or L.S Lowry painting - two of my favourite artists. Have you done your bit to support your local pub this Christmas? 🍻

Nermin Niazi and Feisal Mosleh; the Pakistani Brummie siblings who made a lost 80s synth-pop classic

Read about the Pakistani Brummie siblings who made a lost 80s synth-pop classic

We love when cultures combine to make something beautifully unique. Birmingham proudly plays host to at least 31 different language-speaking communities, which I find fascinating! 

I hadn’t heard of Nermin Niazi and Feisal Mosleh before Matt showed me this article, but after one read and listen, I was intrigued. Click through and get the lowdown on the family who blended Urdu lyrics over South Asian melodies and 80’s New Wave on this recently re-discovered gem of an album, recorded right here in Birmingham in 1984.
