The area around the Hall of Memory is going to be part of a project called Putty, as part of Birmingham Weekender. Come and explore the city on the family friendly art trail, with intricate installations adding a splash of colour to unusual locations across the city centre.

Featured on the trail are Paige Smith’s Geodes and Jan Vormann’s Dispatchwork series, which will be adding some bright and bold artworks to the streets and walkways. Follow the trail map to find the pieces!

Birmingham Weekender, a weekend of world-leading free outdoor performance, art and entertainment, is pleased to announce details of its ambitious, family-friendly festival programme for 2015.
