Birmingham Festival 23 was the official one-year anniversary festival for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Proudly outdoors and free-to-access, the Festival aimed to echo the city-centre experience of the Games, taking over Centenary Square with live music and performance, creative and participatory activities, and big-screen content to conjure the shared moments, magic and memories of 2022. With a nod to the future, it also sought to platform and showcase the city’s talent, diversity and creativity.
