Wherever you go there are waves of posters, flyers and billboards boasting what’s in store for you over the next few months, but here at Birmingham Updates we offer you a week by week breakdown of what you can fill your diaries with, so, what do we have for you this time?
KISSTORY Presents The Blast Off! Tour
Our adolescent playlists are coming to life with this incredible show! The one of a kind ‘Kisstory, The Blast Off Tour!’ comes to Birmingham this March and we are so excited to dance and sing along to these great artists! With performances from the likes of Nelly, Salt N Pepa, Shaggy, Mya and Blu Cantrell you can expect to hear chart smashing anthems such as ‘Hot In Here’, ‘Push It’ and ‘It Wasn’t Me’, all while hosted by none other than the incredible Fatman Scoop!
If all of this wasn’t enough to get you to grab a ticket then there will also be exclusive appearances from garage star So Solid’s Lisa Maffia and MC Romeo, scene pioneer MC DT and the British duos Oxide & Neutrino, DJ Luck & MC Neat and Sweet Female Attitude.
There truly won’t be another show of this calibre so get yourself a ticket and come to The Resorts World Arena to witness this phenomenal event!
The Mighty Craic! St. Paddy’s Day Parade and Party
It’s an event we all look forward to each year, and for a while it looked like Birmingham St Patrick’s Parade Day may not be happening. Well, thank goodness it is! Thanks to two local companies coming forward with financial support we are able to well and truly get our pride on once more!
The official Paddy’s Day Parade will be held on the 15th March 2020, where thousands will line the streets hoping to grab a glimpse of the green white and gold festivities. And, as if the parade were not enough, The Night Owl on Trinity Street are hosting the annual ‘The Mighty Craic! St Paddy’s Day Parade and Party’. This free event is happening right after the parade has finished at 1pm and will entertain you with a family-friendly party until 8pm! Expect live music and a great atmosphere for the ENTIRE family to celebrate. What’s more, after 8pm the event will turn into a ‘no kids allowed’ good old fashioned late-night knees up! Taking you through the evening will be live music playing old Irish classics and DJ’s with party-starting anthems.
If you’re looking to bring your children to an event for Paddy’s Day and aren’t sure where will be offering a family-friendly space, then look no further!
(That is until they need to be picked up at 8pm so you can carry on the party!)
The Book of Mormon
The critically acclaimed ‘The Book of Mormon’ comes to our very own Birmingham Hippodrome for the first time!
From the creators of South Park, this outrageous musical event is not to be missed and with sold-out shows in London, on Broadway, North America AND Australia ‘The Book of Mormon’ has earned its place as an absolute phenomenon. ‘The Book of Mormon’ follows a pair of Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s a long way from their home in Salt Lake City.
Reviewed as ‘the best musical of this century’ tickets are selling very quickly so please don’t miss your opportunity to witness this show in all of its glory!

Contributors to the festival have created their showcases based on four seasonal themes, Celebration(summer); Change (autumn); Illumination (winter) and Hope (spring).

There will be screenings, walks, concerts, performances and workshops for you to get involved with making this an event that has something for everybody!
