This year's "Summer in Southside" event is the most spectacular yet to date, with the highlight being a Chinese Arch erected in Chinatown!


This year, Birmingham Hippodrome’s weekend festival heads back to the carefree days of childhood with FREE fun for kids of all ages.

On offer around the streets of Southside on the 14th and 15th July were

• Pop-up performances • Craft workshops • Retro games • Picnic park
• Face-painting • Auditorium tours • Street food • Family activities

I'm so proud to be working with the talented people of the theatre as they continue to push boundaries in bringing joy to families in Birmingham

The arch was made from cardboard by volunteers including the Chinese Community and was designed by French artist Olivier Grossetête
