We have a major team spot for architects here at Staying Cool and we're delighted to say that Kevin McCloud and George Clark will be in Birmingham this weekend for Grand Designs Live.
We enjoyed this video of last weekend's Style Birmingham Live. Sabrina and Simon from the Staying Cool team were there and confirmed that it was a great event!
Fierce Festival is back in Birmingham this weekend for its 15th year. If you are in the mood for live art that's stimulating and alternative then check out the programme online.
Looking for a great night out? We recommend Birmingham's Jam House in the Jewellery Quarter. It's a fabulous venue for live music (jazz.blues and rock) and you can eat there too. Good times!
If you are in Manchester this weekend, check out the Independent Interiors Show in the Northern Quarter. Entry is only £3.00 and one of our favourite companies, Eclectic Chair, will be there.
Birmingham now has four Michelin starred restaurants as Adam's has been taken into the fold today. Birmingham really is foodie paradise!

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, 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.
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.
