Birmingham Festival 23

Birmingham Festival 23 runs from Friday 28 July to Sunday 6 August and is the official one-year anniversary festival for, and in celebration of, the Birmingham 2022 commonwealth games. The University of Birmingham is proud to be a principle partner for the festival and we've got loads of exciting activities planned at The Exchange as part of this unique celebration.

The festival site is in Centenary square just outside The Exchange, which means we're the perfect place to explore during the festival. You can check out everything you need to know about the festival below. You can also learn more about the festival on the official website.
