With temperatures set to soar over 20 degrees this week, it’s the perfect time to support Birmingham’s outdoor venues.
According to the Met Office, from May 31 temperatures are set to reach the low twenties in the south, and rise throughout the week. The “mini-heatwave” comes after the rainy and miserable month of May.
Weather presenter, Alex Deakin has advised people on Twitter that “sun cream is required” as UV levels are set to be very high.
But where in Birmingham can we enjoy the hot weather while it lasts?
