The Flapper

The Flapper & Firkin is one of Birmingham’s iconic music venues and I’ve found myself working under its brick arched stage a fair bit more lately. This is a venue whose future is currently up in the air with many plans floating around to demolish the site in order to build new inner city housing. Plans to close the venue have already been pushed back once before but do we truly know how long the venue can carry on fighting?

Either way, I’m happy to shoot here till its doors close and carry on supporting small local venues.
