Greetings all, I hope you had an enjoyable bank holiday. I’ll start by introducing myself, my name is Dan and I am one of the five who have taken over the reigns here at Created in Birmingham. I’ve been subdued over the past few weeks as I have been busily preparing for my move into the second city. Things have been quite hectic, but I shall finally be opening the door to my new home this weekend. I have been working in Birmingham for the past 6 months but have commuted in, so the start of September signals a start of a new life and a new art scene to sink my teeth into.
Whilst Birmingham is not new to me, my youth was spent attending gigs at the Barfly and the Academy and I have spent many a Saturday traipsing around the Bullring for one reason or another, I am not familiar with the finer points of Birmingham culture. I do not know the art galleries, where I can attend a good play or even the best places to eat food.
This is where I need your help readers. I’m looking for suggestions of the best places for a newcomer to enjoy in our city and why you think they are a great visit. In turn I shall visit said locations and my posts will become a ‘beginners guide’ to the Birmingham arts community. I think it will be a great adventure and one that, along the way, even the more seasoned socialites will find some new venues and events to enjoy.
I’ll take suggestions in all forms. Email email@example.com, tweet @createdinbrum, comment on Facebook or at the bottom of this article. I look forward to reading your replies and can’t wait to get started.
