Our award-winning venue Millennium Point is set to host an exclusive audience with two of the candidates for Mayor of the West Midlands.
Andy Street, the current West Midlands Mayor, will join mayoral candidate Liam Byrne MP in conversation on Wednesday 9 December 2020. The virtual event will be live-streamed from Millennium Point and hosted by The Lord Mayor of Birmingham’s Charity.

Each mayoral candidate will present their vision for Birmingham followed by a question and answer session from the audience. Local residents and businesses are being invited to register now for the event and for the chance to submit their questions to the candidates.

We’re passionate about our city and its people so it’s a pleasure to facilitate what I’m sure will be an engaging and important discussion about our region’s future.
