Firmly rooted in the community, Simmer Down is a totally free family fun-day festival which celebrates Birmingham’s rich cultural diversity, from its music and food to arts and crafts. It’s the fastest growing and most diverse festival in Birmingham, last year attracting over 12,000 people to the beautiful surroundings of Handsworth Park.

Now into its fifth year and firmly established as part of the city’s festival calendar, this year’s festival looks to be better than ever. so make sure you don’t miss the biggest and best free party of the year!
In the words of Steel Pulse, it’s a “Handsworth Revo-Revo-Revolution!”
