October was also the month of The Big Draw, with an array of activities popping up in association all over the city. We took a look at what Shout Festival had in store for 2010 and, with the help of 40 local bands and musicians, OxjamBrum took over 6 venues in Birmingham for 12 hours of music.
We gave a run down of various Halloween festivities taking place around the city, plus Invisible City hosted Media Circus, celebrating creative Birmingham, and Moseley Folk and Symphony Hall launched the monthly Folk For Free.
Oh and more arts cuts were announced.
