What’s On at The NEC Birmingham

Great Events. Stay Over at Hillscourt.

Creativity, ideas, excitement, buzz and thousands of people flock to Birmingham

Birmingham is lucky to have the National Exhibition Centre in this historic city. It means creativity and ideas, excitement, buzz and people flocking every month. There was a time when you’d only find out what was happening from a poster at a station or in the regional press. Now information is everywhere. It’s worth using the eclectic NEC exhibition agenda as a starting point for a wonderful trip to Birmingham. As part of your visit you might want to combine a stay overnight https://www.hillscourt.co.uk/ or for a long weekend and explore the wonderful countryside too.

The NEC  Birmingham has hosted all kinds of extravaganzas in its 38 year history

In 2014 there will be 140 shows that will attract all kinds of visitors. To get a flavour just look at their list of exhibitions http://www.thenec.co.uk/whatson/ and shows.  There’s the Toy Collectors’ Fair which happens on a Sunday during February, April, September and December. This is Britain’s biggest toy fair and you don’t have to be loaded to make a purchase. Prices are as low as a £1 and you never know what memory or new passion will be rekindled.

There’s a miniaturist in all of us!

Another show on a related theme is Miniatura. If you ever possessed a dolls house it’s likely you have never forgotten it. If you didn’t already know, there is a thriving miniaturist community at work right round the world. So if your curiosity is piqued and you wish to see what they are up to the NEC is showcasing on the weekend of the 29th and 30th March 2014.

Technology and education is up for grabs at the NEC

The week prior, the Education Show is running from Thursday 20th until Saturday 22nd and will certainly be an exciting event. So many aspects of education are changing as technology has become so inextricably integrated into just about every aspect of our lives. It will be a massive draw.
