Walking in a JQ wonderland
Over 100 jewellery themed Christmas lights are lighting up the streets of the Jewellery Quarter this year. The city's largest lighting feature is also housed in the JQ - an impressive 3m x 3m illuminated diamond ring - making it perfect for that Christmas selfie. There are also two 30 foot Christmas trees and over 75 festive windows for you to admire.
The lights switch on will be on Thursday 17th November 2022 from 5pm til 8pm with live music, fireworks and special guest Masterchef: The Professionals winner Chef Dan Lee. There's also a chance to help those less fortunate with a drop off point for donations to Ladywood Food Bank.
