Reminder: Moseley Folk Festival this weekend

Just a quickie to remind you: the Moseley Folk Festival begins on Friday the 4th of September and runs over the course over the weekend. With a lineup including Beth Orton, Jethro Tull, Saint Etienne and El Perro del Mar (amongst many others), why aren’t you there already queueing up to get in? 😉

Handel’s Messiah at the Town Hall’s 175th birthday in October

I was recently reminded about this – on October the 3rd, the Town Hall is hosting a performance of Handel’s Messiah, which is also its official Birthday Concert.

BP Efficiency car coming to Brum – look (out) for yours truly

BP, bizarrely on a quest to help us save money on petrol (whodathunkit), are tooling round the UK with a specially modified Ford as part of their Fuel Efficiency Challenge.

Mysterious white powder covers Midlands; civilisation breaks down slightly

… Or slides into a row of parked cars, as I saw earlier this evening. (Turns out that this white powder can also be extremely costly for some people.) Yes, in case you haven’t noticed, Birmingham has once again been swathed in snow. Local Highways Agency gritter depots run out of rock salt, more salt […]

Seven hours to kill and nowhere to go? Try this.

This sounds like fun – a shame I’m 80 miles away from Birmingham this weekend, this gig sounds exactly like the kind of thing which could keep me entertained for hours. As LiveBrum explains; Project X Presents invites you on a journey into the heart of Digital Dystopia. A carefully sequenced evening during which many […]
