Fierce Festival 2019 / Birmingham, UK / 15 – 20 October

Your visit

Getting around the city

Most venues are walking distance from each other, and we’ve planned the schedule to allow enough time to get between all venues in time for the next show, but plan your route beforehand!

The city is served well by taxis and Uber. There are lots of bus routes around Birmingham with contactless card now accepted on them, so you could consider staying out of the city centre. A new tramline runs from Birmingham New Street to Wolverhampton with lots of stops en route too.

Midlands Arts Centre is slightly further out of the city, but can be walked in 40 minutes from Digbeth or you can get on buses 1, 35, 45, 47, 62 and 63 (depending on where you’re leaving from) or take a 10minute taxi – but beware Birmingham rush hour is notoriously bad!

Warwick Arts Centre is in Coventry. Take a short train journey from Birmingham New Street then it’s a 10 minute bus ride or taxi. Trains run until late. OR on Tuesday 15th October, get the free Fierce bus to Warwick Arts Centre for the Gala Opening Double Bill of Justin Shoulder & Davy Pieters. The Fierce Fun Bus leaves Minerva Works at 6pm returning after the last show.

Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton is just 15 minutes by train from Birmingham New Street, or 25 minutes by tram.
