Looking for something decent to do this weekend? Turns out you’re in luck (‘Cause I know this dodgey f*ck in the duck) because I’ve seen two decent events running this weekend already.
Brindley Place Film Festival
Having kicked off on the 15th Brindley Place’s annual film festival is back and this weekend is set to be the busiest with four fantastic films all for free throughout Saturday and Sunday. Tonight at 6pm A Star is Born is being shown at the outdoor screen just in front of Bank Restaurant while tomorrow there is The Greatest Showman at 1pm and Bohemian Rhapsody at 4pm.
Sunday will feature two family classics, one of the more recent Disney sensations Moana will be on at 1pm before the magical Mary Poppins Returns at 4pm. The se quell to Mary Poppins has received a great deal of acclaim and, although there is some showers predicted for Saturday, Sunday will be mainly just partly cloudy meaning it’s potentially going to be the better of the two days.
It’s an exciting event that is family friendly and completely free, just turn up. I believe there is limited seating available so remember to bring a fold out chair and some snacks.
Birmingham Beer Week
Tonight is the start of Birmingham Beer Week kicking things off with a couple of Tap Takeovers, one by 0121 Vegan at Cherry Reds Café Bar, the other will be at The Victoria when Beavertown Take Over.
The event then runs for a week and will consist of other takeovers throughout the week including DigBrew taking over The Anchor, The Birmingham Beer Debate at the Old Joint Stock, Brewery tours at the likes of Moseley Beer Co and even walking tours discovering Birmingham’s lost pubs.
I’ve added the link here so you can get a full list of the events taking place and when.
These are my two picks for the weekend, why not enjoy a Beavertown beer at The Victoria before heading over to watch a film at Brindley Place and enjoy two of Brums best events this weekend. I should be popping into one after I’ve seen Toy Story 4 at The Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen!
