From mid-June you will also be sent a promotional toolkit containing all you need to decorate your venue.

A couple of things to bear in mind - events must be: open to all, not-for-profit and there should be no (visible) commercial sponsorship at events.

Since 2008, London 2012 Open Weekend has inspired a fabulous variety of local cultural events in the West Midlands, from poetry competitions, dance challenges and coracle racing, to open catwalk sessions, mobile museums and sport taster days – London 2012 Open Weekend provides a unique platform for local cultural organisations to showcase what they do to brand new audiences.
