BMOS Presents… The Nutcracker as you’ve never seen it before

Join us at our next production on Friday 10th to Sunday 12th December 2021 as we perform a spectacular theatrical version of The Nutcracker, in front of a set made from more than 110,000 balloons.

This is a Christmas Balloon Wonderland: The Nutcracker As You’ve Never Seen It Before

Under the Christmas Tree

More than 55 balloon artists, hosted by local Balloon experts Candy Bubbles, will descend on Birmingham this December, to bring a completely unique, larger than life and exciting balloon wonderland to the UK’s second city. Called The Big Balloon Build, this event is set to amaze and inspire both adults and children alike in the largest build this team have ever embarked on before.

For the first time EVER, BMOS have been asked to bring this spectacular installation to life to offer audiences a one-of-a-king theatre experience right here, in the heart of Birmingham.

And it’s all in aid of incredible charity free@last in Nechells.

So, join us between Friday and Sunday, 10th and 12th December to witness our stunning show, in a very different type of theatre!

Location: Nechells Wellbeing Centre, Rupert St, Birmingham B7 4AR
