We thought it wasn't going to happen this year - or again at all, to be quite honest - but the stars have aligned and on 11-12 November we're bringing our hugely popular Independent Birmingham Festival back for a weekend-long celebration of the very best of Brum's independent foodie scene.

This event WILL sell out - so grab your tickets fast to avoid missing out! 

Taking place on 11-12 November at The Bond in Digbeth - a smaller venue than our usual, which means tickets are limited - for those of you who have managed to get tickets to our award-winning sold out foodie festivals before, you know it's insanely awesome and what we're all about. For those of you who have yet to experience the Independent Birmingham Festival, expect one of the very best foodie line-ups of any event in the West Midlands: we get restaurants who don't normally do street food events - including Michelin starred restaurants - to do pop-up restaurants, alongside Brum's finest cocktail bars, wine bars, street food traders, craft beer, coffee and more!

The line up is: Adam's, Eat Vietnam, A La Mexicana, Shababs, Tiger Bites Pig, Smoke + Ash, Trentina, Yardbirds, The Meat Shack, Raja Monkey, Wayland's Yard, The MilkCake Man, Buddha Belly, Cleopatra's Kitchen, LA-POP, Passing Fancies, Fox & Chance, Loki Wine, Pause and the IB Bar stocking beers from Glasshouse Beer Co, Attic Brew Co, Burning Soul Brewery, Birmingham Brewing Company and more!

In addition to an absolutely epic food/drink line-up, we have a selection of Brum's finest indie artisan market traders for you to grab some wonderful gifts - and baked goodies - from, as well as a programme of live music from local bands on our main stage.

As this is a smaller venue than Aston Hall, this means tickets are VERY LIMITED - so make sure you grab yours super fast if you want to attend, as this event WILL SELL OUT fast. 

Our past events have all had unbelievably epic food/drink line-ups, and we've got an absolutely cracking line-up for this event too. Trust us, you're in for a real treat.

Grab your tickets fast - all of our previous events have completely sold out and once tickets are gone, they're gone - and you seriously don't want to miss this. 

Tickets are £12 - children under 12 go free, no ticket required.

We'll see you all there!

P.S. This event is dog-friendly, so bring your best friend along too!
