Digbeth Fun Fair has just got bigger. Not only has the popular attraction - sited at the rear of Digbeth Coach Station - extended operations until 5 September. It also has a brand new addition to keep kids entertained during the school holidays.

Bringing the seaside to the heart of Birmingham, The Beach at Digbeth Fun Fair features 80 tonnes of sand, giant deck chairs, beach huts and water fountains. Ice creams and slush puppies are available to help visitors cool off in the summer heat. And if you get a little bit peckish, there’s a selection of hot beverages and food offerings to purchase on site. All of this is in addition to a multitude of rides for visitors big and small to enjoy. While white-knuckle rides Extreme, Adrenaline, Dominator and Storm are set to satisfy the needs of thrillseekers, younger visitors can enjoy the likes of the Wild Mouse Roller Coaster, the Clown Bouncing House, a mega slide and crazy cars. Giant games with huge prizes to be won, a hanging bar challenge and Shootout The star attraction also feature.

Safety is paramount for organisers Abie and Emily Danter, the team behind the city’s Christmas-season Ice Skate Birmingham, with security and fully trained paramedics on site at all times. Toilets and cleaning facilities are also available.

Digbeth Funfair is open seven days a week (12noon to 9pm) until 5 September. Admission to Digbeth Beach and Fun Fair is free, with individual rides costing from £2.
