Birmingham Comedy Festival20 September 2013

Birmingham Comedy Festival hits town next month from October 4th-13th. Highlights include Russell Brand, Adam Hills, Nina Conti, and Laurel and Hardy on the big screen. 

Location, Location, Location18 September 2013

Location, Location, Location was filmed in Birmingham a few months ago and the episode will be screened tomorrow night (September 19th) at 8pm on Channel 4.

The crew filmed here (and, in fact, Kirstie stayed here), so we are hoping that we'll be on screen tomorrow night at some point.

Adam's Restaurant17 September 2013

Good to see that Adam's restaurant - new to the Birmingham food scene - seems to be thriving. Adam's has won some rave reviews over the past few months in the press and  is currently in pole position on TripAdvisor.

Winter in Barcelona14 September 2013

We'd highly recommend a visit to Barcelona during the winter months. The city is much quieter and there's still plenty to keep you entertained. Our 39 Steps apartment is very central and has heating if required.

Here are some key dates
The International Jazz Festival takes place from the 19th of October to December 1st this year.

The Fira de Santa Llúcia market has run in the lead up to Christmas since 1786. You'll find the market close to the city's cathedral (just a few minutes' walk from 39 Steps). It's a great place to pick up decorations and Christmas gifts. 

Three Kings' Day or 'Reis Mags' is on Twelfth Night (January 5th, 2014). Reis Mags is the biggest day of celebration for Christmas in Spain and Barcelona puts on a huge procession of floats to celebrate.

Santa Eulàlia, held for five days around February 12th, commemorates the city's patron saint. You can enjoy free concerts all over town, processions of giants and fire-running! Many buildings and museums are free to enter during this period.
