The first 12 new brands include:

P& Co

Front Up Rugby  

Protected Species

PopUp Birmingham is sponsored by John Lewis and each individual will be offered expert visual merchandising help to each of the new retailers in store learn how to make their products appeal to shoppers.

The initiative has already launched the high street careers of more than 350 new British retailers through its outlets around the UK.
