Birmingham, UK


It's almost the most wonderful time of the year!! While the German Market won't be gracing Birmingham's streets this year, the Christmas spirit is still alive and well in in our city and the shops are as busy as ever. But whilst you're dashing around Brum picking up another box of chocolates, and a crate of generic beers, take a moment to think about the independent Birmingham businesses you could support this Christmas instead.

This year more than ever smaller businesses in Birmingham need your help to stay afloat.
