Birmingham Disability Festival

Ways for Wellbeing UK are coordinating the very first Disability Festival here in Birmingham.

Taking place on Saturday 6th July 12pm til 4pm at Birmingham City University, Gopsal Street B4 7RJ.

This event is taking place during Disability Pride month (July) the month where all disabled people can celebrate, show off and show how proud they are of their disabilities.

We have a day packed with Fun, Activities and Food so that we can all FAF and enjoy ourselves!

The event is packed full with activities including:

Blind Football, Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia, Curling, Archery, Parachutes, volleyball, and adapted trikes, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4, Art workshops, Dance, Poetry, music, choir and a comedian.

We have Tai-Chi, gentle dance movements, African drumming and visiting Alpacas and Deaf Awareness workshops.

All of our performers, musicians, human library guests, activity leads and market stall holders and organisations with information stands are individuals with disabilities.

Help us raise funds through the Birmingham Community Lottery

Donating via the Birmingham Community Lottery Funding page enables us to raise vital funds for the festival.

We have several sponsors / funders that have supported us so far with pledges of money, in-kind contributions and services that all play a part in enabling the festival to go ahead but we are still in need of funding to ensure that all of the costs for performers, speakers, food, games can be met.

Lottery Tickets are £1.00 per go - you can buy 1 ticket for the next 4 weeks and you can cancel any time - all the money we are raising will be 100% spent on the festival!

From every £1 ticket sold 60p will go to good causes in Birmingham! By choosing us you are choosing which good cause gets 50p of the 60p! the remaining 10p will be distributed to other local good causes.
