We were highly commended at last night's Visit England Awards
for Excellence. We are so proud to have made it into the finals for
a second year running.
Many congratulations to the gold, silver and bronze winners of the self catering holiday category: Trevase Cottages, East View Farm Holiday Cottages and The Dandelion Hideaway. Nettlecomb Farm's Corner Cottage was highly commended alongside Staying Cool.
Birmingham's International Dance Festival is back until May 25th. It is one of the largest dance festivals in the world and highly recommended.
Many of the performances take place in the city's theatres, but we love this informal shot taken by the team at the dance festival, just outside the Rotunda.
We have launched an exciting new competition exlcusive to people who follow us on Facebook. We are giving away two Prince tickets (worth £135 each) plus a night in a Rotunda penthouse! The date for the gig is May 19th.
