There has never been a better time to get out into Birmingham and enjoy some great attractions while they are relatively quiet. To help with this a new website and publication has been launched detailing things open to enjoy in Birmingham.
Speaking of this new initiative Jonathan Berg, Editor of Discovering Birmingham Experiences says: “Birmingham has so many things to see and do and we are focussed on supporting attractions as they reopen. It is so important for our mental and physical health to get out and enjoy the city, and the city needs us all to retain its vibrancy. We give lots of ideas to local people on the places in Birmingham that have worked so hard to securely reopen and welcome us back.”
As attractions reopen new procedures have been put in place to ensure that they are Covid-19 secure. Many now display the ‘We’re good to go’, Visit Britain quality mark to showing health and safety audits and new ways of operating are in place.
Jonathan Watkins, Director of Ikon Gallery in Brindleyplace, says: ‘We reopened in August with our same friendly spirit but with the interesting frisson of face masks, sanitiser and social distancing. Our artistic experience is as safe as it is exciting. The Discovering Birmingham Experiences initiative is timely, but also important as we revisit changing roles of city centres.”
This initiative is supported by the key city attractions including those that have reopened as well as those still working hard on ways to welcome you back soon.
