There will always be plenty of reasons for people to book photo booth hire in Birmingham. There will be weddings and engagement parties, birthdays, anniversaries, company events and much more.

However, this summer will provide yet another, for the whole of Birmingham and indeed much of the Midlands is going to be enjoying a ten-day party in late July and early August.

The Commonwealth Games will be a huge sporting occasion that will certainly put the city and region on the map, acting as the focal point for a large part of the world as it watches sports stars from the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, large parts of Asia, the Caribbean and Africa displaying their talents across a range of sports.

Of course, that means the main focal point will be the venues themselves as the action unfolds. But the Games also provides a great excuse for some great summer parties.

While some of these might be smaller gatherings at someone’s home, others might be much larger, perhaps linked to community groups, companies, churches, sports clubs or other larger gatherings. In such cases, many of those present may be from Commonwealth countries or have family connections there, making this the perfect excuse for a cosmopolitan gathering.

Whether this is about celebrating culture, trying different cuisine or just enjoying sport, adding a photo booth can introduce an extra element of fun to the occasion. This may be even more so if some of those present are visiting from Commonwealth countries to see the Games, making it a real ‘I was there’ moment.

Because the Games run from July 28th to August 8th, the event will coincide with the start of the summer holidays, which means such a party can be held as a family event and run during the daytime, not just in the evenings.

Because of the theme, it will be a good time to dress up in the colours or even national dress of the competing nations, complete with flags and maybe even some sporting fancy dress themes. Anything is possible, which is why such a party – and capturing it on film – will be so much fun.

All this can tie into the Birmingham 2022 Festival, a series of Commonwealth-themed cultural events through the summer to run alongside the Games.

Birmingham itself will stage the majority of events, with the athletics events taking place at the Alexandra Stadium in the Perry Barr area of the city, its capacity increased for the occasion. The Birmingham Arena in the city centre will host some of the indoor sports, as will the National Exhibition Centre. Women’s Twenty20 cricket will make its debut at Edgbaston.

Lesser-known venues will include the Birmingham University Hockey Centre and Squash Centre, while Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield will host the triathlon. In the city centre, Smithfield will stage beach volleyball and the Marathon will end in Victoria Square after its 26 mile journey around the city’s streets.

However, there will be other venues outside the city, including in Coventry, Warwick, Smethwick, Wolverhampton, Cannock Chase and velodrome cycle events in London, making this a sporting extravaganza for the Midlands – and beyond.
