Read this in: 4 minutes

It’s the last week of March, so let’s make it a good one! From live music to pub quizzes and exhibitions, here’s our round-up of the best things to do in the city

Drake | Resorts World Arena | Tuesday – Thursday

Canadian superstar Drake is heading back to Birmingham this week for three nights at Resorts World Arena.

The Passionfruit singer is currently making his way across the UK as part of his latest world tour The Assassination Vacation Tour.

The last time Drake was in the city he performed to thousands of fans at his sold-out shows, before treating his crew to burgers at Original Patty Men and popping into a local Co-Op.

During his career, he’s scored five UK number one singles, two number one albums and bagged a bunch of awards including four GRAMMYs.

Tickets for The Assassination Vacation Tour are still up for grabs, you can book yours here.

Chef Takeover | Arch 13 | Wednesday

Arch 13

Fancy treating yourself to an early-week meal or date night? Why not head to Arch 13 and join guest chef Sophie Baille as she cooks up a storm in the kitchen for one night only.

And if Spanish food is your thing, then you really won’t want to miss out of this delicious selection of tapas dishes that Anne has created especially for her takeover.

It costs £50 per person, including pairing wines. Find out more here.

Pub Quiz | The Lord Clifden | Thursday

The Lord Clifden

Round-up your pals and make your way to The Lord Clifden this Thursday for the weekly quiz.

It kicks off at 8.30pm, so don’t be late. Grab yourselves a drink, a seat and get your pens at the ready to battle it out for some fantastic prizes that you won’t want to miss out on.

It only costs £2 per person to enter as well, so it’s a cheap night out that certainly won’t break the bank. And who know’s you could walk anyway with some extra money!

TAPS Beer Festival | Custard Factory | Friday – Saturday


What better way to start off your weekend than with a couple of pints, live music and some seriously good street food.

Founded by local favourite’s Digbeth Dining Club and Craft Beer Rising, TAPS is returning to Custard Factory for its second year.

Strictly for over 18s, here you’ll find over 20 vendors including Pint Shop, Brewdog, Kilder, The Wolf, Dig Brew and many more, pouring out pints throughout Friday evening and all day Saturday.

Make sure you fuel up with food from some of DDC’s most popular vendors, too.

Plus, you can expect live music from performers such as Heavy Beat Brass Band, DDC DJs, Leftfoot DJs and more.

Tickets are available now, just click here to book yours.

The Spice Girls Pizza & Prosecco Party | The Old Library | Saturday

Spice up your life this Saturday at Birmingham Library with a screening of the iconic 90s movie, Spice World.

It may be 21 this year, but seeing one of the greatest girl bands of all time on the big screen of all time with some serious celebrity cameos just doesn’t get old.

And while you spend your afternoon quoting along to hilarious lines including our personal favourite, “I’m Victoria, Malcolm!” you can also tuck into pizza, washed down with a glass of prosecco – or two.

Exhibitions at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery| All Week

Too Cute!: Sweet is about to get Sinister

Get your dose of weekly culture down at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG).

Whether you want to check out some of the museum’s original pieces or catch Rachel Maclean’s Too Cute! while it’s in town, there’s plenty to see, do and discover down at BMAG.

We recommend that you try your luck in checking out Leonard da Vinci: A Life in Drawing while you can, too.

This exhibition showcases 12 of da Vinci’s most recognised works that have never been shown in the city before, so it’s an absolute must-see.

Find out more about the exhibit, here.
