Introducing our brand new Independent Birmingham Membership Card design – and oh wow, isn’t it a beauty!

Every year we commission an incredible local artist to design the new Independent Birmingham Membership Card – with the vision being that the design must not only be a beautiful piece of artwork for your pocket, but also a unique piece that champions and celebrates the city. This year we teamed up with Lil & Brun (who design and illustrate wonderful prints for children’s rooms and nurseries) to create a design that emulates the vintage posters of yesteryear – and celebrates Birmingham for the truly incredible and iconic city it is.

It’s safe to say that we are very much head over heels with this new design, and the moment it arrives in the post you’ll be in love with it too.

More than just a discount card, Independent Birmingham is a movement, a revolution of local – and a way of giving back to the city in which we work and live. Not only is it a fantastic piece of artwork for your pocket (which just so happens to entitle you to amazing discounts and deals at over 110 of Birmingham’s very best independent cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, pubs, cinemas and shops), the IBcard is your wallet’s best friend and your key to the city – allowing you to rediscover your city, one hidden gem at a time, and making you remember why you fell in love with Birmingham in the first place.

The new Independent Birmingham Membership Card is now available to purchase at a special (limited time only) price of just £12 (instead of £15) or at 2 for £18 (instead of £20) – meaning you can enjoy a whole year of incredible discounts at the very best independents in the city, for less than £1 a month!
