With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we thought we would share our special offer to treat that special person in your life this year.

Whether it’s a friend, partner, or family, purchase tickets to our Greatest Showman with Wine event before the 17th February and we’ll give each guest a mini bottle of prosecco to enjoy before the event. What’s not to love?

Millennium Point have once again teamed up with innovative event specialists The Wine & Events Company to present a fun and unique showing of the smash hit musical, The Greatest Showman, alongside five wines and a very big screen.

Tickets are just £33.95 (plus fees) and takes place Saturday 22nd April at 7pm and available for purchase on Eventbrite.

 ‘So why don’t we rewrite the stars?’

Orphaned, penniless, but ambitious -and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American entertainer, Phineas Taylor Barnum (Hugh Jackman), will always be remembered as the Mn with the gift to blue the line between reality and fiction. Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor manages to open a wax museum; however, he soon shifts focus to the unique and the peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before, live acts on the circus stage. Now, some people call Barnum’s rich collection of oddities, an outright freakshow, but when Phineas, obsessed for cheers and respectability, gambles everything on the opera singer, Jenny Lind (Rebecca Ferguson), to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will lose sight of the most crucial aspect of his life, his family. Will Barnum, the greatest showman, risk it all to be accepted?

‘I wish for happiness like this forever’, you after five wines, probably

Tickets are priced at £33.95 (plus fees) and you’ll get more than just a screening!

The Greatest Showman on a very big screen

Hosted in our giant screen Auditorium – previously the region’s biggest and best IMAX – our host Tony Elvin, from film geeks The Wine and Events Company, will be providing entertainment and movie trivia throughout. For example, did you know Zendaya did all her own trapeze stunts? We definitely won’t be trying that on the night!

Along with all of this, the film will be paused at intervals so you can enjoy five themed wines.

St Basils are back planning the oldest and biggest sleepout in the UK in Birmingham. On Friday 3rd December, the event is now being held at a new venue, the versatile event space Millennium Point. Previously held at Birmingham Cathedral, the organisers are hoping to fill it to capacity this year. The event will be held from 6pm till 6am and £10 to take part.

Due to last year and the pandemic, 2020’s sleepout was cancelled. Usually, the event raises over £100,000 so the organisers are hoping that this year’s is the bigger than ever. The aim is to appeal not only to the adventurous nature of people. But also, to their willingness to support young people with additional challenges of homelessness through these difficult times.

You can register for the event here.

Helping the future engineers, doctors, and computer scientists of tomorrow

Supporting young people improves the chances they have for their future. Helping provide a safe space, education and resources allows them to build better foundations for later life. As a strong supporter for education for STEM, Millennium Point were thrilled to be involved.

Abigail Vlahakis, the CEO of Millennium Point said “It is a pleasure to support the important work St Basils achieves every year in tackling youth homelessness. Young people, many of whom have not engaged in education, training, or employment, are feeling abandoned by our society. However, with a little support, these very same young people could be the engineers, doctors and computer scientists of tomorrow which drive our local economy forward. Millennium Point is determined to raise awareness for this issue and proud to be working alongside the brilliant and passionate team at St Basil’s to end youth homelessness.”

Homelessness shouldn’t be part of growing up

St Basils work with young people ages 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to enable them to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities, and prevent homelessness.

Jean Templeton, CEO of St Basils said “St Basils aims to help prevent youth homelessness in the West Midlands, advising and assisting over 4000 young people at risk of homelessness each year, housing over 1000 and supporting some 750 young people at any one time. We don’t believe that homelessness should be part of growing up for any young person and the money raised from this event will go towards ensuring young people feel cared about and have a safe, decent and affordable home and trusted, skilled support to enable them to develop their skills and confidence and move on with their lives.’

Challenge yourself and make a difference

The Big Sleepout sees hundreds of people from companies, families and groups taking part by challenging themselves, raising money and having fun; particularly in the much coveted ‘creative shelter competition’ with carboard provided yet again by long-time supporters Schumacher packaging.

Barrie Hodge, Head of Fundraising and Communications at St Basils said “We get regulars and people who are doing it for the first time, all helping each other on the night, and it makes for a great atmosphere. The creativity that some people put into the creative shelter challenge is truly amazing and we recognise that with prizes on the night. But despite the fun people have at the Big Sleepout we never lose sight of why we are doing it in the first place. All money raised will help services tailored to support young residents to build confidence and gain skills, and training and employment to ensure they can break the cycle of exclusion and homelessness. We need the support of our local communities and businesses to ensure we can create a brighter future for Birmingham’s young people”

Can’t make it to Millennium Point, you can still make a difference

St Basils will also be running ‘The Big Sleepout from Home’ at the same time. So, if you can’t make it to Millennium Point, you can still get involved in your back garden, office, community hall or ‘sofa surfing’ at home.

You can find out more and apply for your Big Sleepout pack by emailing fundraising@stbasils.org.uk.

Supporters can also make one off donations here, it costs £5 a day to support a young person and keep them at a St Basils project.
