Join Bullring & Grand Central for Summer in the City!
Our space themed event will feature out of this world performances and extra-terrestrial antics to explore the wonders of outer space, in partnership with Birmingham Hippodrome.
On Saturday 13th July, find the incredible Heliosphere on Rotunda Square. Spiralling, spinning and seemingly weightless - an acrobat suspended beneath a helium balloon explores the uncharted space between street level and rooftops.
Next to the Bull we'll be hosting Cloudscapes, where audiences are encouraged to look up and contemplate the different shapes and movements of the clouds.
Around the centre, you’ll also find Silent Rocco’s Lostronaut – an Astronaut who has landed at the right time, on the wrong planet! We’ll also be joined by Close Act’s i-Puppets and Mirror Mirror – a group of alien creatures who appear to mirror the world around them.
On Sunday 14th July, join us for more of the same plus an exciting performance by the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire presenting a space-age programme with popular space theme tunes! We’ll also be presenting Ljud – The Invasion – a group of intergalactic immigrants from outer space who have accidentally landed on our planet….
Performances will run from 12 pm – 4.30 pm on both days.
