With three years to go until the Commonwealth Games, Birmingham 2022 is marking this momentous milestone in the countdown to what will be a once-in-a-lifetime event, by hosting the Commonwealth Social, a free family friendly public celebration on Saturday 27 July 2019.
Taking place in Birmingham’s recently redeveloped Centenary Square from 12:00pm - 7:00pm, the Commonwealth Social will be a fabulous festival of sport, culture and food with the people of the West Midlands at its heart, celebrating everything that makes this vibrant region special.
The Commonwealth Social is an opportunity for local people to join in the celebration of the upcoming Games, which will provide a unique opportunity to put the city and the region on a global stage. There will also be a first glimpse of the new Birmingham 2022 branding, which has been created by working closely with communities from across the West Midlands, to create something that is truly representative of the region and its people.
Attendees can expect to be wowed by pop-up performances from regional talent including dance groups, brass bands, choirs and world DJ sets. Local street food traders from Digbeth Dining Club will provide an exciting range of cuisine from across the Commonwealth, including Caribbean, Mauritian, Indian and British, encouraging local people to enjoy exciting new flavours from around the world.
The day will play host to a number of sports demonstrations including 3x3 wheelchair basketball and much more. Team England athletes from the region and beyond will be in attendance to join in the celebration and mingle with local people.
