Urban Village Summer Fete

When: Saturday 28th July, 11:00-17:30
Where: Urban Village, Gibb Street, The Custard Factory, Digbeth

Urban Village will be opening their new ground floor extension on Saturday 28th July. To mark the opening, they will be throwing an indoor Vintage Summer Fete that will take over the ground floor of the Zellig building.

With local vintage stall holders, live music performances, and a range of vintage games for all the family to enjoy, including a hook a duck competition for children, a charity raffle with the main prize a unique vintage postman’s bike, and a balloon race with all proceeds going to Help The Heroes foundation.

Frankie Johns, the owner of Urban Village, said: “We can’t wait for everyone to see the new extension. It seems people are shying away from ‘throw-away’ high street fashion and are wanting to invest in quality and affordable pieces of vintage.”

There are still announcements to be made but this event promises to hold something for everyone, from discounts to games, from competitions to vintage bargains. For more information and the day’s running times please click here.

    Balloon races are harmful to the environment, to wildlife and to domestic animals, as I outline in this article:

    Perhaps the balloons are biodegradable – but, as my article shows, even biodegradable balloons can last – and do harm – for a year or more.

    Organisations who oppose balloon releases include the Marine Conservation Society, the RSPB, the RSPCA, the National Farmers’ Union, the Shark Trust, the Tidy Britain Group, Keep Scotland Beautiful, Tidy Wales, Tidy Northern Ireland, Clean Cornwall, county bird clubs, various Wildlife Trusts, the Bumblebee Trust, The Soil Association, The Waterways Trust, The Terence Higgins Trust, The Alzheimer’s Society, and others, plus companies including Sainsbury’s, Norwich Union, TGI Fridays, M&S and Barclays. The Guinness Book of World Records no longer recognize balloon release records “precisely because of environmental concerns”.

    Please do not release balloons.
