Best Events in August
With sun high in the sky and the city's parks ready for all your daytime lounging, there's no time like the present to get your summer celebrations on. August in Birmingham looks set to be a hot one, with everything from Swift-inspired club nights to wholesome canal cruises offering the perfect stages to show off those tans (or rosy sunburns). So buckle up and get ready for the greatest summer to date as we round up the best August events in town.
Has the doom and gloom of 2020 made you wish you could go back in time? Head to the Clifden for a 90s-inspired brunch that'll surely make you stop right now and feel a whole lot better, with a soundtrack of classic anthems, delicious dishes, refreshing drinks and plenty of fun and games.
The Reggae Brunch is providing some much-needed tropical vibes this summer. Head to one of their awesome parties and you'll get down to reggae, soca, calypso and more with delicious jerk dishes and free-flowing cocktails to fill your Saturday afternoon.
It may seem like the makings of a wholesome day out, but this canal-cruising picnic is packing a boozy punch. Alongside a sojourn around Birmingham's prettiest waterways you'll be tasked with tasting five perfectly paired gins and tonics, but please remember what they tend to do with drunken sailors.
Spring may have left a blank space in your social calendar but August shows no sign of running on empty. Celebrate the summer season at one of the most popular club nights in the land as this Taylor Swift-inspired dance party crashes down in Birmingham once again.
One of the most anticipated productions coming to the Old Joint Stock this year, this award-winning comedy musical is much more than a few friendly puppets. Taking on a three-week run at the Jewellery Quarter's favourite pub, you'd be a Muppet to miss out on it.
Seasonal Markets are back doing what they do best this month, but this time they're making it all about cheese. Head over to The Custard Factory where you'll find a huge line-up of the city's most impressive melters, alongside cocktails, craft beer and loads of live entertainment.
A fun way to up your cake-making skills, The Big Birmingham Bake fuses competition and creativity as you're tasked with spending 90 minutes crafting a perfect sweet treat. The cherry on top? If your bake is up-to-par you could walk away as the supreme winner.
