The Bromsgrove district is home to approximately 100,000 people and with almost 90% of its land designated as green belt it offers a distinctive contrast to the urban density of Birmingham which sits just to the north.
One of the district’s most expansive green spaces is Sanders Park, which covers more than 16 hectares and attracts more than 350,00 visitors a year. It also hosts Blue Sky Cinema’s “Drive-in Movies” where people can enjoy classic films and the latest blockbusters under the stars.
Avoncroft Museum is an experience not to be missed. It’s Britain’s first open-air museum, where over 30 historic buildings and structures have been rescued and rebuilt, and are now carefully maintained and accessible to visitors on a 19-acre site.
Bromsgrove's historic outdoor market has been a central part of the town’s retail offering since 1200, and was a central focus of the recent heritage-grade redesign of the High Street.
Bromsgrove Carnival is an annual charity event that is a highlight of the district’s cultural year. While it has been forced to take a break in 2020 it promises to back with a bang in 2021.
