A real treat for lovers of Jazz vocals.
Roy Forbes is known to Birmingham festival audiences as a dynamic and exciting singer who has built a great reputation in the city over some years as well as appearing (and recording at) London’s Jazz Cafe and the Stables, Wavendon, and taking in other festivals as distant as Milan and St. Lucia, scoring a big success at the Limoges Jazz Festival (‘an exceptional concert’, according to Le Populaire du Centre). The Birmingham Mail wrote about Roy’s performance in the 2011 Jazzfest, ‘Is there a better male jazz singer in this country? Probably not. Roy Forbes is a master of his trade.’
Being one of Birmingham’s best attractions, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens offers something for everyone, be it one of our four stunning glasshouses showing tropical rainforest to arid desert, beautiful gardens, playground, tearoom or our gift shop.
The Main Lawn is an amphitheatre, with its axis running roughly south-west from the Terrace to the Bandstand. This acts as a sun trap and the higher ground behind cuts off the cold northerly winds, so the Lawn is a popular spot for sunbathing and picnics in fine weather. The grass gets favoured treatment to keep the turf in the fine springy condition which makes it such a pleasure to walk on and a joy to behold from the Terrace.
The Bandstand is surrounded by colourful summer and winter bedding displays, in keeping with the period of its creation. On the far side of the Bandstand is the fountain, and the planting areas around the fountain have been enriched with shrubs for all seasons, including Peonies, Abelias, Camellias and Hydrangeas.
