What's On in Kings Heath

Birmingham is one of the UK's greenest cities & the youngest city in Europe with almost 40% of our population aged under 25.
We have more canals than Venice - Kings Heath is on the canal network, an easy way to walk or cycle into the city centre.

Kings Heath has a thriving High Street, village square, leafy parks, sporting facilities and a wealth of music venues, pubs, restaurants & cafés.

Apart from the regular chain stores on the High Street (Bonmarche, Boots, Burtons, Clarks, Costa Coffee, Dorothy Perkins, Greggs, New Look, Poundstretcher, Shoe Zone, Specsavers, WH Smiths), there are a host of independents:
