The Birmingham annual free events arts bash. Anything from a local singer-songwriter in a pub, to the CBSO and th Royal Ballet on the big stage in Centenary Square. In the end, we enjoyed the smaller events more, not so overpowering with the numbers of people around. Even had a friendly chat with two Villa supporters outside the Prince of Wales pub on Sunday evening, local guys with an interest in music and no interest in causing trouble. Fun.
