Noon Friday April 23 - noon Saturday April 24

The team behind Birmingham’s UK City of Culture bid is inviting residents, arts organisations, event organisers and independent artists to take part in a 24 hour blog showcasing the cultural life of the city.

The Big Culture Blog will go live, at midday on Friday April 23 and for 24 hours will record cultural activity across the city.
We want you to take part.

Throughout the 24 hours our roving reporters will visit locations across Birmingham, reporting back live on the website. Armed with video cameras they will be able to capture Birmingham citizens enjoying culture in its many forms.

So whether it is a craft club, knitting circle, school or college project, live music (rehearsal or performance) we want to hear from you!

It will be easy to take part – as simple as sending an email! Everyone in the city encouraged to take part – will only take a minute or two to contribute. The blog will be available at

If you’d like to take part, stay tuned for more information or Email Us
