Today sees the opening of one of Birmingham’s newest iconic building – The Library of Birmingham. Love it or hate it, its a new landmark not to be ignored.
It is an amazing space for sure – with the outside performance area, the three soundproof music practice rooms and outside gardens it really is worth a visit.

As one festival ends plans for another one begins!
Birmingham St Patricks Festival Committee have been meeting on a monthly basis since April 2013 to plan and prepare for the 2014 week long celebrations – nothing like being prepared.( From September 2013 meetings will take place on a monthly basis and from January 2014 will be bi weekly)
To celebrate, the festivities will begin with the launch party on Friday 7th March followed by a week of themed events from an art exhibition by local secondary schools, storytelling and more. Parade Day is Sunday 16th March – giving us all extra time to get ready for the actual day itself on the 17th.
The theme for 2014 festival is Myths & Legends, something Ireland is world famous for.
