Birmingham for a few hours on a Saturday night
Possibly giving 4 17/18 yr old girls a lift to and from a Gorillaz concert on 2nd Dec – God help me.
Any suggestions on what to do? Could take my camera, but wary of wandering round a busy city centre on a Saturday night.
The Christmas market is on, but Mrs STR would be majorly unhappy if I went without herPosted 3 months ago
Dad music – well, I can’t stand em. Albran makes me want to smash things (mostly him). She’s not passed her test yet – it was going to be train there and a bloody expensive taxi back – we live near Matlock.
Our minicab/bus driver of choice is busy and yes there’ll be others, but certainly don’t want them getting in a random Birmingham cab! Just thought it might be easier if I fetch them – gives me a reason to have a weekend night off the booze. I don’t have to take them, but it’s an option.
No room for Mrs STR. I’ve not done this thread before. Can’t say I’m to bothered about a Christmas market, but it might make for some good street photographyPosted 3 months agoalanlMember
The xmas market will be totally rammed on a Saturday night, especially round the town hall. It isn’t just busy, it is football crowd crush busy.The bit on Broad st isn’t too bad, as it’s out on a limb a bit.Posted 3 months ago
Some pubs all around there, take a walk round then sit and eat in one of the pubs/ many eateries around broad st/ gas st basin.wrightysonMember
Artist the Christmas market will only make you want to drink the beer you cant. For some reason we always end up at a gig in brum at this time of year (kasbian on the 4th this year)and i can honestly say its mostly about eating foot long hot dogs and drinking steins.Posted 3 months ago
It is rammed in the day around the busier drinking areas so God knows what it’s like at night.
Liking the look of DDC – is it the sort of place you can just rock up to? Again, might be a good spot with the camera
I certainly don’t own a Brompton and won’t be taking an mtb
Christmas Market might be best avoided – as will any other really busy areas. I’ll need to park the pick-up somewhere tooPosted 3 months ago
Well, I’m at DDC being a bit of a Billy no mates, but it’s great – cheers for the recommendations. Killed a couple of hours, had a dirty chicken kebab, a couple of beers and done some people watching. Would definitely come back with some friends. Can’t wait to pick up the sweaty drunk teenagers…Posted 2 months ago
