In late December, Birmingham was announced as the 2022 host of the Commonwealth Games. Delighted with the news of this great sporting and cultural opportunity coming to our region of the UK, we will be hosting a celebration event as our Spring Assembly for 2018.

At this Assembly hosted by Citizens UK: Birmingham, up to 900 people from across the region will be coming together to congratulate and celebrate the news of the impending arrival of the Games. Amidst joyful celebration and powerful testimonies we will seek specific pledges from the Bid Team and their partners on a set of citizens' gurantees raising aspirations which benefit communities.

Rooted in what matters to our families and civil society, Citizens UK invite it's members and guests from across the region to join us at this major ticket only event in the Birmingham Town Hall.

There will be cultural performances and powerful testimonies and the event will bring together up to 1000 people from across the region. This will be a chance to seek pledges from the bid team to ensure that the games are beneficial to the community.
