See Birmingham in 30 seconds

We've produced a 30-second film titled ‘This is Birmingham’.

 

The film features a young woman walking through some distinctive Birmingham locations – from the Symphony Hall to the Custard Factory, Jewellery Quarter and the University of Birmingham.

Our film is designed to tempt people who may have little knowledge of the city to explore its vibrant heritage, entertainment venues, culture and beautiful public spaces.


So, dim the lights, open the popcorn and see how many places you can spot here...
