Birmingham Settlement Neighbourhood Futures Festival 2023 Monday 26 June – Saturday 1 July 2023

We celebrated the launch of our exciting ‘Edgbaston Reservoir Nature and Wellbeing Centre,’ with a week of fun and thought provoking activity, debate and talks focused on climate change, exploring the ways in which we can combat this global issue within our own communities. With such a successful week we plan to make this an annual event for Birmingham Settlement. See below for details of this years event and check out some of the photos!
