Songs for Migration II
Tuesday 18th December, 7pm - 11pm
In celebration of International Migrants Day, and to mark the close of our Children in Movement project, we’re hosting an unmissable evening of music and spoken word performed by members of Birmingham's many migrant communities.
The event will take place in our cosy basement, with festive drinks and nibbles to get you in the mood for merriment.
