Ten things you can get in Birmingham for a pound that will change your life forever

  1. A record from Reddingtons

  2. Eat like a King (or Queen) at Mr Egg


  3. A double vodka in Snobs. And then all the indie you can eat comes for free.


  4. Have 3.33 pisses at New Street Station.


  5. Anything (but not everything) from Poundland as it was founded by a Brummie.

  6. A packet of waxy, horrible posh crisps from the Hare and Hounds when you just want some Smiths or Walkers.


  7. A bag of dodgy Loom Bands off one of the New Street trading posts.


  8. 5 disposable lighters off some guy in the pub.


  9. All rides (Dodgems £1.50)


  10. A trolley from The Asda, to take back to halls of residence or to throw in the Tame.


BONUS: And you can get a photo of Mr Egg from us for £1 when you make the minimum pledge on our Kickstarter.
