The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive.
The Castle and Falcon established itself way back in 1852, and has been home to live music for decades, hosting legendary acts such as UB40 and Duran Duran whilst also being the epicentre for Birmingham’s punk scene for several years. In the past two years we’ve had a complete renovation and reopened as a 100 and 300 capacity venue space, returning to our original name The Castle and Falcon.
In late 2017 a whole host of local promoters came onto the scene including Birmingham Promoters, Sonic Gun, Killer Wave, Catapult Club, Surprise You’re Dead and Punks Alive as well as some of the nation’s biggest promoters Live Nation and SJM promotions. We’ve been lucky enough to have bands travel as far as Canada, North and South America and even Russia to play at The Castle and Falcon, as well as giving a platform to some of the biggest risings stars in music including Mahalia, Riscas, Sam Fender, The Night Cafe, Boy Azooga and more.
As with many independent music venues, The Castle and Falcon faces not only hardship now, but later down the line due to strict social distancing measures. Please support us however you can and help us keep another part of Birmingham's live music scene thriving.
