Put Sunday 10th September in your diaries, folks! 

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, good people of Kings Heath and beyond…we are so excited to announce that the Kings Heath Street Festival is BACK! Make sure you’ve got Sunday 10th September 2017 in your diaries, because it’s time to party KH style!

We’ll be celebrating the end of Summer in style with a whole day of free family fun lined up across York Road, Heathfield Road, Silver Street, the High Street, and Kings Heath Village Square. Over 10,000 of you lovely lot came out to celebrate with us last year, so here at KH BID HQ we’re busy making sure that this year will be even bigger and better than ever before! Expect live music from the best bands and rising stars in Brum, a market area showcasing creators, makers and traders from Kings Heath and beyond, a huge street food feast and plenty of tipples to wash it down, traditional fun fair rides and children’s activities to keep the little ones entertained, and much, much more…watch this space for more details.

As the festival is only a few months away (not that we’re counting down the days!) we’re looking for street food and market traders and children’s entertainers to help make the day as amazing as possible. If you’d like to get involved and would like to trade at the event, please email martin@enjoykingsheath.com with some more details of what you’ve got to offer.

This year, we are also on the lookout for talented up and coming musicians and bands to perform on our Heathfield Road Stage! If you are a local, up and coming artist who would like the opportunity to perform to thousands, then get in touch! Before you apply, please consider the following:
