The Swingamajig Botanical Ball will take place at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Westbourne rd, B153TR
The Swingamajig Afterparty will take place at Amusement 13, Kent St B5 6RD

Both venues are easily accessible to everyone.   If you are driving please check back later regarding parking info for the Botanical Gardens.  There are plenty of car parks in the area around the Afterparty and free street parking too if you don’t mind a short walk.

Birmingham has really good transport links to pretty much everywhere in the world – coming to the festival by public transport is easy and hassle free.  As the Botanical Gardens is about a 45 min walk from the various stations, we suggest jumping into a taxi when you arrive.   In Birmingham you have a choice between 3 types

  • Black Cabs – the only vehicles licenced to pick you up without prebooking first.  They tend to be a little more expensive but can always be found outside the various stations
  • Private hire/mini cab – there are plenty around, we use are A2B Radio cars 0121 744 1111 and they are very reasonable
  • Uber is in Birmingham and as long as you avoid surge pricing it is very reasonable

By Train
There are 3 train stations in Birmingham, New Street, Moore Street and Snow Hill.  All are within a similar distance to the gardens and our afterparty venue is really close to both New Street and Moore Street

By Coach
Birmingham Coach station is a short taxi ride from the Botanical gardens and a 5 min walk from the afterparty venue.  The Megabus stop is right in the centre of town and either head to the taxis round the corner at the mailbox or book a minicab to pick you up from where you are.

Walking/by Bike
It is a lovely area around the gardens and if it is convenient walking/biking to the festival is a great idea.  Cyclists you can lock your bikes up by the wall on the left hand side as you come into the Botanical Gardens Carpark.
