Clotheshow Birmingham Reviews
Shoppers and fashion addicts paradise Nov 22, 2008
The clothes show is an annual event running for a week usually in December.
The ticket price itself (around £25 usually) is quite cheap as this gives you access to all the shopping areas and also a seat for the show.
The show is definitely the highlight of the event! It usually lasts for around an hour and includes prize giveaways, a band/artist performing a song (last year: Sugababes, year before: Amy Winehouse), and then the fashion show which is always really good fun with all different themes, booming music and the models dancing and doing gymnastics down the catwalk. The models are always very talented and a lot of time must go into the choreography.
I put the price tag as expensive however as the amount you're liable to spend is phenomenal! The whole NEC is packed full of stalls selling EVERYTHING and no one can resist buying a lot. The place is heaving with people and it's usually boiling hot.
Avoid if you don't like crowds, shopping, feeling too stuffy, waiting in long queues for food, teenage girls screaming at the occasional "celebrity" who walks by... the list goes on.
