  2. Nicky Esquilant says:

    We have a wonderful vibrant city we should be so proud of what we have. Fingers crossed for success as City of Culture 2013.

  3. Bright Space says:

    Bright Space backs the City of Culture bid for Birmingham as we believe that Birmingham’s diverse communities, young people and families will have even greater opportunity to engage directly with the benefits that arts activity can bring. Birmingham is an exciting, young and vibrant city which places the arts and culture at its very heart and we hope this bid will stimulate visitors to see our city in a more positive and exciting way.

  4. Lee says:

    Birmingham truly is a cultural city. Its impact simply on the world of entertainment must be recognised. Think of all the great musicians that orginated from Birmingham and the surrounding area. On top of that it has further evolved into a thriving business community and manages to combine to two effectively.
