Swingamajig – A festival like no other

Swingamajig Festival is back on April 30, bringing the fun of the runaway circus to Digbeth in a day long extravaganza.

Last year saw Digbeth over run with eclectic swing music, trailblazing fashion and a whirlwind of dancers. Those with a love for vintage, kitsch and all things swing will be sure not to miss this extravagant event.

And that’s not all. Cabaret, magic tricks and burlesque will help you escape the 9-5 grind and immerse yourself in a world of whimsy like no other. New to this year’s Swingamajig is a vintage crafts fair and bazaar, home to all the trinkets and treasures that your hear has always desired. Mouth watering street food will also be on offer alongside vintage treasures and one off pieces.

Here’s what to expect from this year’s festival bonanza: 

You can still grab tickets to this surefire crowd pleasing event, for as little as £26! Tickets can be purchased here. But be quick, the circus won’t be in town for long…
