A copy of ‘Forward‘ (the council’s official publication profiling policies, initiatives and events) just plopped through my door.Â Let’s see what interesting event info there is and pull together some links.
The Old Rep Theatre, which closed in Feb for renovation, re-opens on 30 Sept.Â The first show is ‘Messed Up’ by Small Heath Young Rep.Â Then there’s ‘Play On’ in honour of the theatre’s founder, Sir Barry Jackson, which I can’t find any info about online at all.
There’s lots of BMAG stuff listed:
- The Birmingham Art Fair at the Gas Hall, 19-21 Sept
- Body & Soul: Sculptures by Juginder Lamba at the Waterhall gallery until 26 Oct
- In The Picture, old and new photos from the Handsworth Photographic Society at Soho House until 2 Nov
- Ford Madox Brown: The Unofficial Pre-Raphaelite at Gallery 16 until 14 Dec
- Hair at Gallery 20 until 1 March 2009 looking at, well, different hairstyles
Also, Mike Gayle will be talking about his new book, The Life and Soul of the Party at the Library Theatre on 24 September.
Finally there are a few NEC/NIA listings and a mention of the Emirates Beach.
