If you’re starting with us this September, here’s what you’ve got to look forward to in 2019 and beyond!
1. Get tickets to the Cricket World Cup
Hands down the biggest thing coming to England this year is the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Ten of the biggest national cricket teams are coming together to battle it out for the World Cup trophy. Luckily for us, Birmingham is home to the Edgbaston Cricket Ground which plans to host a few of the scheduled match-ups.
Edgbaston will host one of the biggest bouts of the tournament with home-side England set to take on two-time World Cup winners India on Sunday 30 June. Following that, the semi-finals of the cup will also be hosted in the city on Thursday 11 July.
2. Eat in a converted boiler room
The Grand Hotel on Colmore Row is currently going through a period of restoration with an aim to modernise the 19th century hotel. As part of the restoration project, the 5,000 sq ft underground boiler room has been converted into a Chinese restaurant and cocktail bar called Tattu, which opened in February.
Tattu already has successful restaurants in Leeds and Manchester, making Birmingham its third opening. Their interiors are VERY Instagrammable and ideal for a celebratory meal or a fancy drink out as a treat.
