The creative folk in Birmingham are having a moment; to make this festive period even more special Old Joint Stock theatre is hosting two glowing evenings.
The theatre is stunning, and more so when it's lit by hundreds of candles. Catch the first of two Christmas By Candlelight evenings where the theatre's 21-foot high Christmas tree will be a glittering centre piece.
Piece de resistance
The Old Joint Stock is a regular haunt for my friends and I, and no matter the day, it's always a relaxed evening, mingling amongst the after-work scene who spill in from Colmore Row.
It's a grown-up, but also chilled atmosphere, and when lit up by the glow of hundreds of candles, the scent of roast turkey and cranberry wafting your way, it's a little intimate evening that you don't want to end.
Mulled cider as well as their regular beers on tap will be available, so you can jig about to the live music which will surely get you doing more than tap your foot.
