Birmingham Punx Picnic 2017 (30th Aniv) – 1- 3 Sept 2017

BPP2017

Birmingham has always had a lively underground punk scene  – And every year, for the past 30, they have an annual summer picnic…..  Which used to be a riotous assembly outdoors with loads of cider and studded leathers I imagine, but is now a three day festival in a pub-venue.    In their own words…. “Birmingham Punx picnic, hosted every year by Punx for Punx and all in aid of a good cause.”
