Welcome to the Birchfield 'Our Bigger Story' website. This is part of the multi media evaluation of 15 Big Local areas in England. The website is an opportunity to follow what is changing in Birchfield as a result of Big Local over a ten year period.
The aim of the website is to share the learning from everything that is happening in Birchfield with other Big Local areas and highlight what works in communities with a wider audience of practitioners and policy makers.
Light Night Arts Commission in Birchfield, North Birmingham Work with the local community to create a Light Night celebration in partnership with Gallery37/Punch Records, Birchfield Big Local and Saathi House. We have a £20K to commission artists or an arts organisation to create three/four light-based, highly visual, LED, neon or projection installations celebrating the heritage and cultural diversity of the Birchfield area. The birthplace of Birchfield Harriers and Aston Villa FC, Birchfield is now a vibrant multicultural area with a rich cultural heritage including Grovesnor Road Studios – the second oldest operational recording studio in the UK after Abbey Road.
