A traditional visit to the Pantomime we will be dining at the restaurant at the Birmingham Hippodrome, and then taking our seats in the theatre to watch Cinderella, with plenty of jokes and silly songs.
We head out on our brummie double decker bus to visit Acme Whistles, and Snell & Prideaux.
This is an amazing opportunity to see inside the working factories of two great Birmingham manufacturers.
Tours will be led by Simon Topman and our very own Clare Ashton. We will have lunch at the Red Lion, a traditional pub in the Jewellery Quarter.
Then we will visit the museum of the Jewellery Quarter. This was originally a factory making Jewellery that has been preserved with all it’s original fittings and work spaces.
We then return to the Copthorne Hotel for dinner and dancing to the tunes of a traditional Irish ceilidh band.
We are heading back to the Hippodrome for a back stage tour, before taking a stroll through Birmingham, seeing the sights and learning about the City and the many famous landmarks.
The tour will take end at Itihaas, an Indian restaurant for a light lunch, and maybe one or two speeches.
After lunch there is time to relax and explore. We recommend a wander round the nearby Museum and Art Gallery, which has fantastic collections of Pre-Raphaelite Art and also houses the Staffordshire Hoard.
Saturday night we welcome you to the Drumming Out Dinner in the opulent surroundings of The Birmingham Council House.
You will be welcomed with a champagne reception followed by dinner, plenty of wine, and of course drumming out Kate and drumming in Iain McFarlane.
