17th-19th July sees the Jewellery Quarter host its very first festival — a weekend of events celebrating the diversity and creativity of the Quarter. There will be something for everyone to enjoy including live music, performances and open studios.
Organised by the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID), the festival marks the official opening of the JQ’s new public space, The Golden Square.
The festival also coincides with Birmingham Jazz’s Jazz Legends Festival, curated by British trumpet legend, Henry Lowther. There will be thirteen gigs over the weekend of 17th-19th July at venues across the city, but primarily in the JQ’s Red Lion.
Birmingham Jazz is entirely volunteer-run and receives no public funding.
