Lets Dance! Bring your dancing shoes as Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF) takes over Smithfield Festival Site for a non-stop closing celebration through dance and movement.

We are delighted to be presenting a special one-off programme on Sunday 7 August

Putting the best Midlands talent centre stage and celebrating the city’s distinctive spirit, BIDF will present a joyful, bold and inspiring line-up of performances and workshops throughout the day for you to watch and take part in.

Closing the night, we’ll turn up the volume as our energetic DJ sets get you up and moving in whichever way you can! Expect high energy, engaging dance films on our giant screens and a mass dance project from Critical Mass, an inclusive participatory project who joins us straight from performing at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony!
