URGENT TODAY BEFORE 4PM: Play your part in Birmingham’s City of Culture pitch!

City of Culture FlagThe Birmingham UK City of Culture team makes its final pitch to the judging panel in Liverpool TODAY explaining just why our city deserves to be the first ever UK City of Culture in 2013.
Can you help convince the judges that Birmingham deserves this prestigious accolade in 2013?
The strength of our bid comes from the fact that it is supported from the grassroots upwards. The 24-hour Big Culture blog in April saw 7,500 individuals blogging about over 350 cultural events in just one day.

Can we replicate that huge success today to show the panel that Birmingham means business?

How Can You Help?

You can add comments to the live blog and the bid team will make sure the panel see your contribution between 2-4pm. (The blog will be broadcast to the judges as the team pitch)

Go to http://birminghamnewsroom.com/?p=11060 
Or tweet using the hashtag #intheroom and they’ll pick up your tweets and add them to the blog. You can tweet messages of support at any time.
This is Birmingham’s bid, and would help bring great benefits to us, so please play your part and together We Can Win!
