Christmas with a twist - A Winter Less Ordinary - The Rainbow Venues


Christmas with a twist – A Winter Less Ordinary

A Winter Less Ordinary – Sat 12th & Sun 13th December

Inspired by the eclectic Saturday night markets of Goa and the derelict yet beautiful arts and music spaces of Berlin, A Winter Less Ordinary is a multi-faceted event, showcasing & retailing a wide range of independent art, fashion, crafts and food in the creative hub of Digbeth, Birmingham.

The beguiling environment will be set amongst a backdrop of installations, live and DJ based music, spoken word, immersive theatre plus lots more visual and aural stimulation of a magical nature. Unlike anything the city has ever seen before, A Winter Less Ordinary promises to be a bustling market, buzzing meeting place, relaxed hangout, eclectic dancefloor and recreational odyssey for all the ages, richly infused with the spirit of Christmas – but with a distinct twist.


Creating a wonderful social hub throughout the festive period, A Winter Less Ordinary will run 12th & 13th December, with each day having varied programme of entertainment.

– Independent retail stands in fashion, art & crafts
– Digbeth Dining Club street food traders + further in-house stalls
