Party time in Kings Heath: with blue sky and street fest

more Kings Heath local news

Kings Heath's third annual Street Festival takes place this weekend in York Road, Heathfield Road, Silver Street and Kings Heath Village Square.

After 8,000 people turned up to last year's celebration, the organisers have expanded this Sunday's event (11 Sept) into new areas and added new attractions.

There will be live music, market stalls, street food, children’s entertainment, and much more, from 11am. Activity on Kings Heath Village Square will end at 5pm, while the party keeps going elsewhere until 8pm.

“The festival is a real highlight for us all here in Kings Heath, and is always a great day for the community to come together and celebrate what our town is all about,” says town centre manager Martin Mullaney.

As part of the festival expansion, Silver Street and Kings Heath Village Square will be transformed into a dedicated family area, with a whole host of free fun to keep the little ones entertained from 11am-5pm. Amongst the activities, there will be music workshops from Birmingham Rockschool, face-painting, games with Tots Play Birmingham, craft activities with local independent toy store Togademus, as well as a variety of traditional fairground rides, a big wheel, carousel, electric go-karts, and bouncy castles, plus a BBQ and bar on the Square courtesy of local pub The Station.

This year, there will be three stages of live music programmed by local music venues Hare and Hounds, Kitchen Garden Café, and Birmingham Rockschool. Amongst the line-up of local musicians and artists taking to the stage, there will be performances from Major Toms, Dirty Old Folkers, Rhino and the Ranters, Prodigal Scum, Swampmeat Family Band, Jacob Johnson, Young Culture Collective, Ashland, Bostin Brass, Crooked House, and many more, as well as performances from Birmingham Rockschool’s Choir, teachers and students.

Festival food naturally comes from Kings Heath's now famous band of street food traders, with dishes from Canoodle, Hungry Penguin Pancake Co, Stuffo, Esme’s Eats, I.Juice, Barebones Pizza, Bournville Waffle Co, Fat Breads Food, Stuffo, and Little Sixty Three.

There are also pop up bars from Hare & Hounds, the Station, and Kitchen Garden Café keeping the drinks flowing.
