The square is a great place for sunny activities and events, with picturesque views and nearby places to dine.
THE JEWELLERY QUARTER FESTIVAL
On the last weekend in June, the annual Jewellery Quarter Festival took place. On what may have been our hottest day of the summer so far. People enjoyed great food, drinks and entertainment to celebrate another fantastic year for the ever-improving Jewellery Quarter.
As part of the Festival, The Jam House celebrated their 20th year by hosting lots of great bands on the main stage here in St Paul’s Square. With a full diverse line up, there was something for everyone, and it was a great time for the local community to come together to enjoy the entertainment and sunshine. We love our little location and being part of such a wonderful community.
