The Olympics and the Paralympics dominated our spare time this summer, but we've also been reflecting on how brilliant the Cultural Olympiad was in the West MIdlands.
964 projects, including 78 world premieres, lit up the region all summer. Our favourite was The Voyage, which took place from June 21-24. The show transformed Birmingham's central square into an ocean-going liner. It was truly spectacular.
