To bring even more people together during Birmingham 2022, Festival Sites will be staged in the centre of the host city, in Birmingham neighbourhoods, across the West Midlands and beyond.
The sites will be free to access and will include live performances, entertainment and special events, as well as giant screens where people can gather to watch the sporting action and the Opening and Closing ceremonies.
The Birmingham 2022 Festival Sites will combine sport, culture and entertainment and provide an opportunity to be part of the Games, even if you don’t have a ticket for the sporting action, or if you want to continue your Games experience following a visit to a competition venue.
During the Games, you’ll find our major Festival Sites in two iconic areas of Birmingham city centre. The first will be in Victoria Square and the second at Smithfield, alongside the Beach Volleyball, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball 3x3 venues.
Across the city look out for our seven Neighbourhood Festival Sites, which are being produced by and for local residents. These sites are bringing the Games experience right to the doorsteps of Birmingham residents.
The neighbourhood sites even include the first ever Relaxed Festival Site at a Commonwealth Games. This will be located in Touchbase Pears in Selly Oak and will provide support to people with complex disabilities.
