We were proud to hear that Orchestra of the Swan, whom we sponsor, have reached the finals of The People's Millions with their project 'Anthony and Cleopatra - the Musical'!
'Anthony and Cleopatra - The Musical!' is a year of workshops and rehearsals involving children with physical and learning disabilities from Straford and Birmingham. It aims to help every child involved to reach their full potential. The year culminates in a final performance - an hour of spectacle and madcap humour.

Harvey Nichols Birmingham has launched a pop-up
cinema for Christmas!
You can enjoy a film, Harvey Nichols mince pies, mulled wine and cranberry juice at their store at The Mailbox. Tickets are completely free. However, there are only 40 seats available for each show on a first come first served basis.
The screenings include Miracle on 34th Street and The Snowman and you can see full details online.
We were pleased to host blogger Terri Lowe and her friend - and fellow blogger - Victoria at our Rotunda apartments recently. They really liked their Mini apartment with Terri writing, "..wow, just wow!! It was amazing."

Birmingham is in full Christmas mode ! The Christmas lights are on, the Frankfurt Christmas Market is open and the Winter Skate ice rink and big wheel are working night and day. Combine all of that with an amazing array of high street and independent shops and it's a really great time to visit the city.
The Birmingham Hippodrome is the most popular single theatre in the UK selling over half a million tickets per year. It's a beautiful theatre made for a special night out and spending the weekend in Birmingham to take in a show could be much easier on your pocket than the West End.
