We can officially announce that International Dance Festival Birmingham 2014 was a huge success!
Co-produced by Birmingham Hippodrome and our partner DanceXchange we welcomed dancers from 18 countries who performed at 19 venues across the city-region and, over 12,000 people enjoyed 21 performances on the streets!
This year saw audience figures rise with a programme featuring more events than any previous festival. Truly city wide in scope, nineteen venues helped see attendances at the 43 ticketed performances rocket by 30% from the 2012 festival to over 21,000 people.
The festival was also boosted with the help of our media partner BBC WM 95.6 who produced a special film #Brummoves showcasing music and dance from the region. If you haven’t already you can watch the film here
A very, big thank you to all the amazing and talented dancers, companies, venues, supporters and of course a special thank you to our audiences for helping to make the 2014 festival so successful – here’s to 2016!
