This pop up theatre tour is part of a new programme of cultural events taking place throughout Solihull right up until the Commonwealth Games in 2022 and beyond. There are plans for all sorts of exciting events where culture and the arts are featured; from pop up theatre in your local High Street, opportunities for small scale commissions, to a storytelling project linked to the impact of the pandemic on local people in the Borough. Look out for further information on our websites and social media accounts #solihullculture. We will bring you regular updates on both the Core Theatre’s and the Council’s website. If you would like more information and to be included on our database please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Town in the Country Variety Radio Show is live family-friendly fun. 40 minutes of music, circus, and local tales; this is a variety show you won't want to miss! Playing in community spots all over the borough from the 17th to the 26th of September, bring a blanket, bring a friend, and get ready to celebrate the stories, people and places of Solihull.
