This year the FREE family festival "Summer in Southside" goes intergalactic and explores the spectacle and wonders of outer space! Celebrating 50 years since the first moon landings, the streets of Southside around the Birmingham Hippodrome theatre will be transformed into a lunar landscape for a whole weekend packed with performances, installations and extra-terrestrial antics from a list of "out of this world" acts.
