The Midlands Arts Magazine


Welcome Midlands Arts Magazine

We are here to cover the wonderful arts and culture scene of both the West and East Midlands. On stage, on screen, or at a lovely restaurant table we are here to talk about it and to recommend it to you. We review the very best from our arts world here in the Midlands. We have some of the best live theatre in the country, all surrounded by superb restaurants, and in case you want to make it into a long weekend we will be able to recommend some beautiful hotels as well.

This is your one stop arts and culture magazine for the Midlands.
