Spring will be coming early to Birmingham with the launch of a new season of shows and concerts at two of the city's leading entertainment venues. B:Music, the Birmingham music charity responsible for Symphony Hall and Town Hall, has launched its new Spring programme for 2024 which includes comedy, live music, dance and spoken word on its two world-famous stages. The new season gets underway in February, with the varied and exciting programme continuing right through until the end of April, with live music, dance, comedy and film all featuring.

There is plenty more live music to choose from over the coming months, with three-time Grammy Award-winning Lucinda Williams and The Pretenders, still going strong with 45 years of classics under their belts. Fellow Grammy award-winning folk singer and instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens performs at Town Hall, while Symphony Hall hosts the London Concert Orchestra as they perform the film score of the award-winning Paddington while it plays on a giant HD screen.

For something a bit different, the Queen’s Cartoonists will bring animated films to life, synchronising their performances with the films projected on stage. Jazz singing sensation Samara Joy also performs at Town Hall having taken home two Grammy Awards in 2023. Elsewhere, some 'veterans' of the music industry will be coming to Birmingham, including Lulu celebrating her 75th birthday year, ABC performing their classic album The Lexicon of Love in its entirety, The Pretenders, and 10CC on their Ultimate Greatest Hits Tour.

Dance fans can enjoy the award-winning Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company presenting its stunning flamenco production Andalucia. Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Royal Ballet Sinfonia celebrate the music of Tchaikovsky, and Giovanni Pernice is back with his brand-new live show, Let Me Entertain You. There is also the chance to see Dirty Dancing on a giant screen while a live band plays the film score.
