Wondrous Stories

Free! 17 – 20 March 2022, Centenary Square, Birmingham


Tell us your story!

We all have a story to tell and we want to hear your story!

Wondrous Stories is inspired by our connections to stories and storytelling. We’re inviting people from across the region to share their story to form a snapshot of life in the area as Birmingham and the West Midlands become the focus of international attention through the Commonwealth Games. A selection of stories will also be used in a scene in the show!

Fill out the submission form below to tell us your story! Stories can be whatever you want to share – stories of everyday life, what Birmingham and the region mean to you, or just stories about what is important to you in your life. You can choose how you want to tell us: write it down, paint a picture, make a video – it could be anything!

When you share your story, please do not include any personal information that might identify you. Don’t use your name and your address, or any other information you would not like to be shared publicly. If you share videos and images, please only share what you are happy to go public with. Read our Wondrous Stories Guidelines and Policy for more information.

From 17-20 March 2022, we will transform Birmingham’s Centenary Square into the stage for Wondrous Stories, a spectacular large-scale show which will open the Birmingham 2022 Festival. You will be able to attend seven free performances of this incredible event!
