Essential maintenance

As part of improvements to our network we will be updating our internet connection between 6.30pm and 9.00pm 12 November 2019.

We do not anticipate any downtime but you may notice a short interruption of our online services.

We thank you for your patience while this work is completed.

What's on

With great open spaces and parks, it’s little wonder that there are so many events and activities in Solihull every year.

Use our What’s On calendar to see what’s happening across the borough.

Please note: Solihull Council is not responsible for organising all the events/activities in the calendar. Please check the details in the individual listing and contact the organiser to make sure the event/activity is going ahead. We will only announce cancelled events on our Facebook and Twitter accounts if they are organised by the Council.

If you're planning on holding an event in one of our parks or Solihull town centre please complete our events enquiry form.
