It's another great weekend for music in Birmingham!
Elvis Costello is on tonight just down the road from us at Birmingham's Symphony Hall and there are still (a very few) seats left - including three in Row C as we 'go to press'.
Another recommendation is the Universe of Sound digital installation (until June 16th), which allows you to explore an orchestra from the inside out using touch screens and planetarium-style projections. Free.
June is pretty much fully booked in our gorgeous (and air
conditioned) Barcelona apartment, 39 Steps, but we still
have dates in July and August.
Book four nights but only pay for three using the code BARCA4 online.
