For something live and immediate, sampling a bit of Birmingham theatre right in the city centre is impossible to ignore. You might find yourself being irresistibly drawn to the larger scale spectacle of somewhere like Birmingham Hippodrome. Alternatively, you could opt for The Crescent which is a member-run organisation. The performances they put on are by those with a real passion for theatre, guaranteeing you a good night out, and for a good price too.
Birmingham has a fantastic musical history and has produced some excellent, beloved acts over the years. These days it still stands as a great place to play for many artists, so why not see one if you can? There are smaller venues dotted around the City Centre (and the rest of the city) meaning that if money is tight, there’s always a way to see a concert, live and loud.
A quirky choice perhaps, Ghetto Golf is a unique experience. Based in the bold and artistic Digbeth, just a short walk away from the Bullring, Ghetto Golf is an imaginative version of the kind of crazy golf you may be used to. Combining wild colours with a zany, edgy approach to design, Ghetto Golf is both fun and hilarious. Ideal for all students, this activity offers you a great atmosphere to go with all of the laughs and enjoyment that make this night-out so memorable.
Bars and Pubs
If you want to go to the City Centre but just want somewhere to have a drink with your mates and enjoy the night-out as people in Birmingham often do, then the collection of bars and pubs here are sure to satisfy. From fancy cocktails to a proper pint, Birmingham City Centre is not short on beverage choices. Whether you choose an Irish pub in Digbeth or one of the bars situated along the beautifully lit canal side in Brindley Place, Brum’s city centre is ideal for grabbing a drink.
Somewhere you’ve probably already heard of, the Bullring is the heart of all things retail in the city of Birmingham.
