We might also want to add spoken-word type events, particularly given that some of the above theatrical things were basically that (or stand-up comedy, but let’s not tar them with that brush) in all but name.

15/1/16 – Henry Rollins’ “Charmingly Obstinate” @ The Town Hall, Birmingham
19/3/16 – “An Audience With Tony Iommi” @ The Town Hall, Birmingham

Plus speeches at demonstrations and such.

Dance, too? I saw “Torque” and “Cubes” in Centenary Square on 14/5/16, as part of the International Dance Festival of Birmingham. That’s it though.
