Arts and culture festival Birmingham Weekender returns to the city for 2019 with a weekend of dazzling performances in Digbeth.



The free event takes place from 4 - 6 October and will entertain audiences of all ages with dance, music, theatre and other exciting activities.

Galleries, bars, cafes, cultural venues and outdoor public spaces across Digbeth and in Southside will host events during Birmingham Weekender , which is produced by Culture Central.

A detailed programme is set to be revealed by the end of summer to match the previous lively festivals in 2017 and 2015.

Emily Labhart, Producer of Birmingham Weekender said: "The festival is a huge celebration of the dynamic arts and cultural scene in the city. It presents the perfect opportunity to showcase the artists and organisations that work year-round to make great things happen for the people of Birmingham. "With everything from exhibitions to workshops, to performances through to walking tours - I can't wait for us to shine a spotlight on this part of the Birmingham."



Steve Ball, Director of Culture Central, said the programme aimed to highlight the fantastic wealth of artists and cultural organisations, of all sizes, in Birmingham.

The Weekender will also encourage families and other festival-goers to visit Digbeth and Southside to find out what is on offer in those areas of the city.

Birmingham Weekender, which is funded by Birmingham City Council and Arts Council England, returns after two years. 2017 featured hundreds of local and international artists and companies.



Details of the full programme will be revealed by the end of August at the Birmingham Weekender website .
