We need more events that involve local businesses and that do not revolve exclusively around alcohol. Someone has already mentioned the Digbeth Dining Club as an example, but we also need things like open mic nights, arts fests like the Dudley Eye Candy festival, Birmingham’s Zine Fest etc. Right now I don’t think of Wolverhampton as a place to spend time, I get in and get out. The Mander centre is half empty and the full half is mainly discount stores or weird scammy ‘massage therapy’ booths. Teens are moved on and older people fill the benches, because neither group has anything else to do. We need to fix the root cause not treat the symptoms – there needs to be more done to engage with the community.
