Comedic drag artist Chris Titmas will be on hand to turn on the Christmas lights, host a Christmas jumper competition and to welcome local choirs and brass bands throughout the day, whilst ShayShay will bring their festive queer cabaret and top pub quiz Steve Nice will present an interactive, not to be missed, Christmas quiz.

Danielle Bozward, Marketing Manager at Bullring & Grand Central said: “Our on-going partnership with Birmingham Hippodrome continues to bring unique experiences into Bullring & Grand Central for our customers and we can’t wait to bring some additional festive cheer in the run up to Christmas.

Graham Callister, Director of Festival at Birmingham Hippodrome said: “We are delighted to be bringing artists into Birmingham for some festive mayhem as we count down to Christmas – who doesn’t want to get involved in a sprout eating world record or showcase their Christmas jumper in between Christmas shopping!
