Thank Birmingham Botanical Gardens for the Music

Abba fans will be thanking Birmingham Botanical Gardens for the music as the family attraction welcomes Swede Dreamz, a tribute to Abba, this August.

Dust off your best 70s bellbottoms and knee-high platform boots. Dancing Queens will be encouraged to sing along as the look-alike band perform a long list of classic hits, such as Mamma Mia, Waterloo and Super Trouper.

Swede Dreamz is one of the last in a series of shows at the Gardens this summer, which have included open air theatre performances of Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and Wind in the Willows. Show season will conclude with Moonlit Movies: an outdoor cinema experience that takes place between Thursday, September 14 and Saturday, September 16.

James Wheeler, chief executive of Birmingham Botanical Gardens said:

We love a bit of nostalgia here at the Gardens. With nearly 200 years of history, it’s great to see some other historical moments recreated right here under our roof.
Luckily guests won’t have to Take a Chance on the weather – Swede Dreamz will perform inside (which is, coincidentally, closer to the bar).

Established in the early 19th century, Birmingham Botanical Gardens features four spectacular glasshouses, a lively birdhouse, wildlife trails and seasonal butterfly house, all situated on 15 acres of flourishing gardens and foliage in the heart of Edgbaston. The horticultural attraction is an education charity that receives no external funding and relies on visitor membership and admission fees to keep the organisation blooming.

Have your Money, Money, Money ready as tickets are selling fast. Advanced bookings cost £20. Doors to the event will open at 7pm on Saturday, August 19. For more information and to book tickets visit or call 0121 454 1860.
