The Birmingham 2022 Festival has announced the start of an exciting six-month-long cultural programme across Warwick District and the West Midlands; the biggest celebration of creativity ever seen in the region and one of the largest ever artistic programmes to surround the Commonwealth Games.

Amongst the 200 events being staged is an aptly themed Talking Birds production of ‘Come Bowl With Me’ which will take place in Royal Leamington Spa’s Pump Room Gardens from 23 to 25 July.

As part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival local audiences will also be treated to a month-long CultureFest staged from 16 July to 21 August at venues across the Warwick District’s four towns of Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth and Whitnash.
