Super Saturday at Stechford Arts Trail

If you haven’t already heard, Stechford arts trail launched in July 2018 and is a new art and walking trail with sites dotted around the East Birmingham neighbourhoods of Stechford, Glebe Farm and North Yardley.

All 10 new public art pieces have been created with the help of residents, community groups and local partners. Along with two existing pieces, Arts In The Yard have formed a free, fun and family-friendly art trail that is best explored on foot.

All artists are Birmingham based with many having links to the trail area. The project is delivered by Arts In The Yard; a grassroots, community-led arts organisation who are part of the city’s Local Arts Forum network supported and funded by No. 11 Arts and Birmingham City Council.

This Saturday Stechford Neighbourhood Forum are offering 3 chances to come and get involved, no need to book, just turn up!

How running inspired me

“Running is free, you can do it anywhere and it can do wonders for your physical and mental health. There are lots of wonderful places to run in Birmingham, including our beautiful parks and the canal network.”

 

“RUN Birmingham will cater for everyone, from the nervous novice through to more serious runners who want to participate in major events. I have no doubt this initiative will build on the success of the Morrisons Great Birmingham Run and the Great Birmingham 10k.”

 

“Great team spirit, needed motivation, feel fab after, lovely people!! It’s just fab”
