Jewellery Quarter Festival 2017 FREE


The third annual Jewellery Quarter Festival is back this summer, bringing with it a taste of something quirky and a little bit different in Birmingham.

Organised by the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID) and supported by local businesses, JQ Festival 2017 will be hosted over the weekend of 28th – 30th July with free family activities, entertainment and opportunities to discover why today’s Jewellery Quarter is the place to live, learn, work, visit and invest.

“The BID team are delighted to be bringing the Festival back to the Quarter this year”, comments Luke Crane, JQBID Manager. “Each year it gets a little bigger and you can see the momentum is really building.”

Our old-timey Helter Skelter makes its return, offering free rides to everyone throughout the weekend alongside comedienne Barbara Nice and a whole host of new entertainment, live music and free heritage tours. The festival will also offer a tantalising selection of street food and drink to tease your taste buds alongside more than 60 quirky bars, independent cafes and restaurants all open over the weekend.

JQ Open Studios will also make a return with artists, artisans and creatives across the Quarter opening-up their workshops and studios for people to come inside and see what they make.

The JQ Festival will start on Friday 28th July at 4 pm on the Golden Square; 11 am Saturday 29th July and 12 pm Sunday 30th July on both Golden Square and St Paul’s Square. Friday night is aimed at adults while Saturday and Sunday will have a host of acts, entertainment and activities for all the family.
