About Us

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

We return from 27-29 September 2019 following the success of our 2017 edition!

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 and beyond. 

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