be a truly historic occasion and a fantastic opportunity for the people and
communities of Birmingham and the wider region to come together and
celebrate. Throughout the weekend, we will mark this once in a generation
event in true Birmingham style and I’m sure the Centenary Square celebrations
will prove to be a hit.”
