Glowing review by Birmingham Mail “…Simmer Down is the ultimate uplifting and family-friendly event.”

July 21st, 2015 12:59 pm

Simmer Down Festival is over for another year.

As the fastest growing and most diverse festival in Birmingham, the Simmer Down Festival in 2015 attracted a massive crowd to the beautiful surroundings of Handsworth Park.

The free family fun-day festival which celebrates Birmingham’s rich cultural diversity by paying tribute to the centrality of reggae and other musical genres that make it such a city of culture.

There was a wide range of performances from local musicians and dancers on our second stage to reggae-bhangra fusion, lover’s rock and global reggae superstar, Maxi Priest on our Main Stage.

Off stage, there was plenty of fun activities for all the family including workshops, face painting, bouncy castles and slides for the kids, a community cricket match. There was also a showcase of Birmingham’s diverse cuisine at the various stalls.

We have an overwhelming response on social media as well as a glowing review by Birmingham Mail who said “…Simmer Down is the ultimate uplifting and family-friendly event.” Click here to read the full article.

Now into its sixth year Simmer Down has certainly established itself as part of the city’s festivals calendar.
