The Culture Card


You may already be familiar with our good friends Brumpic.

They post incredible, nostalgic photos of Birmingham from the archives – creating a beautiful collection of snaps of our great city. Soon, you will know them for a whole new reason as they’re set to launch an exciting new membership scheme, the region’s first ever ‘Culture Card’.

This July, Brumpic will be launching the first culture card for the region and it is set to provide exclusive offers and discounts for cardholders. This membership scheme will provide access to the very best that the West Midlands has to offer in the way of the arts, culture and heritage. So if you’re a bit of a culture vulture, this sounds like the card for you!


“We are very excited about launching the region’s first Culture Card. We’ve got the top heritage and cultural destinations on-board, and are offering something really quite special to residents and visitors to the region. Not only do card holders get great discounts at the destinations, but they will also be able to enjoy some exclusive events.” – David Oram, founder of Brumpic.

At just £12.95 (or two for £20) for a year of amazing discounts, for those of you who love a day out, this card is a steal. Offers include: 40% off entry to Warwick Castle, 2 for 1 entry to Birmingham Botanical Gardens and 25% off selected performances at Glee Club, plus much more. Indeed, if cardholders visit each partner venue on the Culture Card just once within the year they could save around £250 – making the card worth every penny. It definitely looks set to be an exciting addition to your wallet, and should be the perfect accompaniment to your Independent Birmingham Membership Card for sure!


In addition to the wonderful offers above, members will have exclusive access to the latest news from Brumpic and their partner organisations, and more offers and events are going to be announced over the coming months. And, for the keen beans out there, there’s also the chance to receive a limited edition, enamel, Brumpic pin badge (reserved for the first 200 cardholders). To be in with a shot of receiving this exclusive pin badge, simply head to the Culture Card website and purchase your card the moment it becomes available on 6th July 2017. Grab a Culture Card and indulge your inner culture vulture.
