Christmas Market15 October 2012

The wonder that is Birmingham's Frankfurt Market is only a month away. It runs from 15 November- 22 December.

With over 180 stalls, It's the ideal place to really get into the Christmas spirit.  And, if you'd like to indulge in a little gluhwein, we recommend coming into the city by train and booking into one of our boutique apartments.

Birmingham Comedy Festival02 October 2012

Birmimgham Comedy Festival kicks off this weekend and runs from the 5-14 October.

Highlights include shows by John Bishop, The Hairy Bikers, Seann Walsh and punk poet John Cooper Clarke.

Comedy in the Dark at The Electric sounds particularly intriguing- the show was a sell out success at the Edinburgh Fringe.
