We’re a little late on this one (busy times at Badego towers), so apologies if anyone had events this past weekend that we missed out. Here’s some things to look forward to this month. As always this list will be updated periodically, so if there’s anything we’ve missed off let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
Glug Brum – Procrastiworking
Thursday 23rd March @ Spotlight
Glug Brum is back with another evening of excellent talks. This time featuring Pip Jamieson, Animade, Paul Felton, Marcroy Smith and Joyce Li.
There’ll be street food and potentially some art pop ups as well.
Tickets are available at £9.50 and group tickets are available too.
If you don’t fancy going alone, come and join us! We’ll be heading over as part of our ‘Badego Does…’ for March.
Saturday 11th March @ Impact Hub
PMT (Powering the Matriarchy Together) is a day-long festival which will cover themes of love, art, body and work. This is the first of its kind for Birmingham, and will be an opportunity to celebrate the rich mix of some of the many womxn* and non-binary people who make up this city.
The day will feature workshops, live demonstrations, microlectures and a marketplace of PMT makers.

Friday 10th March @ Impact Hub
A relaxed night to catch vibes with other creatives.
Paint Like Banksy
Thursday March 16th @ Red Peppers, 117 Wharfside Street
“PopUp Painting is the perfect way to drink creatively on a night out in Birmingham! Join us at Red Peppers to unleash your creative side over painting and wine. Your art experience is inspired and themed around Banksy!
With a wine glass in one hand (or your most preferred poison!) and a paint brush in the other, whatever the skill there’s no experience needed to take part. All equipment is provided, so follow along as our artist facilitator guides you, or if you’re feeling adventurous free-styling is always welcome!”
March 17th to 26th – Across the city
I wish I’d created this festival. Super excited.
Bournville Children’s Book Festival is only in its forth year, but is already attracting some of the biggest names in children’s literature.
Bournville BookFest 2017 aims to serve every youngster from toddlers to teenagers, primary school children to young adults, and all their parents, grandparents and carers, with a fun, dynamic and exciting programme.
There’ll be more that 100 events across the city, parents go free to nearly all events.
There’s more info here (it’s a bit easier to read than their website)
The Girl Behind the Glass
Wednesday 15th March @ The Mac – Tickets £3
Fellow Badegoer Chloe Knibbs sent us this production she’s been working on which we thought sounded really interesting.
With 1 in 3 women across the world experiencing sexual assault, this piece explores the non-linear journey of sexual assault recovery. The piece also considers how society perceives these issues, and the effect that has on those who have experienced sexual assault.
A multi-talented female trio of two singer-actors and a cellist use live music, movement and drama to take the audience on a journey through denial, rejection and acceptance.
On the radar:
Not this month but close enough to be thinking about.
Meet the professionals with Create in Brum
Monday 3rd April @ Impact Hub
If you’re not heading to Type Talks on the 3rd head on over to Impact Hub where Create in Brum are doing their first event.
“We have 3 wonderful females who are bossing our creative industry that will be involved in a casual panel discussion based on their occupation, discussing topics on how they got there and any tips they would have for anyone wanting to progress further in their own career.
We will also hold a Q&A session where you can ask any questions you may have about your own futures. Our event schedule will be posted closer to the time including who our guest speakers are.”
