Birmingham

The one in England not the other one.

 

Ange and the girls went to the Symphony hall to watch a dance show featuring dancers from Strictly come dancing. They loved it.

 

I had a wander around and couldn't believe how different this central part of Brum is starting to look

You were blessed with a sunny day for your adventures!
Bill Phillips: We were indeed

It looks like it is set out for a celebration of the Summer weather, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was a very hot day!
This looks very nice, Bill!
My Dad was born "in the other one" smile
Bill Phillips: Well I never....my Dad was born in this one grin

It seems this place has only just started to wake up and exude any sort of civic pride. I remember that ghastly Bullring with horror..
Bill Phillips: The old bull ring was dreadful the new one is much better. The City will be interesting to see again once all the work is finished
Don't you love when things change for the better, Bill, and not the other way around!
Bill Phillips: Birmingham city centre could only be improved. In the 70s when we lived in Brum it was ghastly

This looks very modern to me, but very appealing too. I would not mind a walk around in this place.
You got lucky with the weather.
Bill Phillips: When it is all finished it will be worth having a look. It was a very hot day!
A lot of European money has supported the re generation of Birmingham...Obviously the future plans will now not be fulfilled
Bill Phillips: Surely the Government will have plenty of money to give them when the fruits of all our trade deals see money pour into their coffers

an impressive building - Brum is the twin city of Leipzig - and this says something. You were there on sunday, the 18th of June?
Bill Phillips: We were indeed Philine. That was why I couldn't come to Bath
It must be some time when you went to Birmingham Bill, It's looking quite good. But then I remember us being there with Ingrid.
Bill Phillips: I remember meeting up with Ingrid there too. I don't suppose I have been to Brum more than about twice since

Even since I was last there, the area has changed considerably; I don't think that this restaurant was there. Towards the end of my time at BT, I had an awful woman manager and her office was in the BT building in Broad Street (new the Jury's Inn); I would be summoned up occasionally for a completely undeserved b*llocking (I now know it to be bullying). It took me several years afterwards before I could visit Birmingham and enjoy being there. Symphony Hall is a wonderful venue.
Bill Phillips: Bullying is one of the great evils of the modern workplace. I would have loved to have not needed to pay a mortgage and be of independent means so that I could have told people like that just what scum they are. Symphony hall is magnificent

The reflections on the concert hall windows are special. In general, quite an interesting area.
Bill Phillips: The building on the right is the repertory theatre.Birmingham Rep dates back to 1913 and is the oldest theatre based company in the UK. The current building was opened in 1971 I think and refurbished and linked to the new library of Birmingham in 2013
Alright if you have to be in a city.
Bill Phillips: We lived in Birmingham for 5 years when we were first married. We didn't mind at the time but I couldn't live in a big city now
it has a rather large, bricky-blocky appearance but i can imagine that the dance performance was enjoyable, Bill. i think, however, i too would prefer to walk around.
Bill Phillips: They said the dance was fabulous but I was quite happy pottering about

They have made a lot of changes over the last few years. The station now seems more like an airport!
Bill Phillips: It is a far cry from the Birmingham of the 70s
