Birmingham City Council’s Arts Champions Scheme brings the arts to all areas of the city by partnering respected arts organisations from the city with each of Birmingham’s constituencies.

These “Arts Champions” bring new events, advice and activities to their partnered communities.

Northfield has been partnered with Birmingham Repertory Theatre since 2008. The Rep has brought theatre, workshops & education into the local community over the period of the partnership, including the Sparks Toy Theatre Project with local schools.

The Rep also offers specially discounted tickets to some performances as part of their Northfield Nights scheme. Residents of Northfield constituency (including the wards of Northfield, Longbridge, Kings Norton and Weoley) can purchase up to four tickets for Northfield Nights performances at the discounted rates. Visit the site for details or call the box office on 0121 236 4455 for details.

From April 2011,until 2014, Northfield will have new Arts Champion partners: The Ikon Gallery and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

We look forward to finding out what these fantastic arts organisations can bring to Northfield.
