Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring Event

We just wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to our Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring event yesterday. It wouldn’t be half as fun without you!

Your energy brought the whole event to life. It was great to catch up with old friends and meet new faces.

Seriously, your presence made our day. We hope you had as much fun as we did and are feeling the spring vibes as much as we are now!

This event was made possible by the generous support of Birmingham City Council
