We’re back at Stirchley Baths for a bit of a building takeover – on Saturday 18 March from 10am-3pm, for the first of our quarterly seasonal markets for 2023. This market is taking place on the Saturday of Mothers’ Day weekend.

And not forgetting the return of:

Outside in the car park we have Buena Onda who are new to the market and will be serving up hot tacos and nachos – a stall with Mexican roots serving up Mexican food.
SCM helper Verbena Kitchen is running the cafe serving hot drinks and snacks from the hatch into the main hall.
Community group Stirchley Open Cinema are screening short films and running film-y craft activities in the cinema room
Birmingham Community Matters are available for advice for community groups/voluntary projects in the cafe area from 1pm-2.30pm.
Stirchley Library is open next door too – and it’s StoryTots morning so come afterwards!
We love that there’s lots of markets around Stirchley nowadays and you catch other traders missing from this list at places like Attic Brewery and Yoga Borne ✨
As a community group we are very grateful for the support of our committee and volunteers, and the ongoing support of Karen Cheney, Stirchley Baths, as host.
This year we applied for and was successful in receiving a small pot of funding from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) via Birmingham City Council, which has helped us plan four events in 2023: 18 March, 17 June, 16 Sept and 2 Dec.
