A few festive bits and bobs happening around Birmingham…
It’s the BrumNotes/This Is Tmrw Christmas Party at The Victoria tonight. Click the link or ogle the poster below (sidenote: are Lewes Herriot‘s gig posters the best around town at the moment? Answers on a postcard).
Birmingham Hippodrome have Cinderella on until the end of January and has already picked up some really good reviews from the Birmingham Mail and The Stage. I went along to the press night last night (disclosure: that means they gave me free tickets) and liked the lovely horsey best.
In other theatre-based offerings:
- The Rep have The Snowman at the ICC and Sleeping Beauty at the Crescent Theatre.
- Blue Orange Theatre in the Jewellery Quarter are doing A Christmas Carol
- The MAC have The Lost Happy Endings
Film-wise, Kino 10 are showing The Nightmare Before Christmas plus some short films at St Columba Church on Friday 23 Dec and The Electric have a smattering of festive films too.
Town Hall & Symphony Hall have a bundle of events going on:
Meanwhile, down in that London, Birmingham Royal Ballet are seeing out the year performing The Nutcracker at the O2, which sounds like a pretty big deal to me.
There’s loads of other stuff too, obviously. If you’ve got any other good suggestions then bung them in the comments.
