About Us

Birmingham’s largest arts festival, Birmingham Weekender features an awe-inspiring programme of free events from hundreds of world-class West Midlands and international artists and companies.

We return from 22-24 September 2017 following the success of our first festival in 2015!

Expect an exciting programme packed with new commissions, world premieres, roaming and pop-up street theatre, participative events and workshops, and much more, across the city-centre. 

The full programme will be released in July 2017.

Birmingham Weekender is brought to the city by Culture Central, the cultural development agency for Birmingham.
