VENUE: Flatpack Hub

97 Smallbrook Queensway
Birmingham
B5 4JL

Traditionally the beating heart of the festival, the Flatpack hub has over the years found itself in an old dance studio, various draft warehouses and in 2016 the museum’s palatial Gas Hall. We’re going for something a bit more intimate this year, ideally positioned for many of our Southside venues.Take a walk down Smallbrook Queensway from New St station, past Debenhams and across the bridge, and you’ll see us on the left by the bus stops. Throughout the festival we’ll be dishing out brochures, passes, T-shirts and beverages, and hosting all manner of free talks and screenings.

The hub will be wheelchair accessible via a ramp. Unfortunately there are no disabled toilets available at the hub.
