Birmingham Inclusive Sports Festival
The Birmingham Disability Sports Forum was established to help improve, grow and raise the profile of disability-friendly recreational activities across the city by delivering the annual 'Birmingham Inclusive Sports Fest' (BISF); a campaign that delivers a week-long festival of inclusive sport and physical activity taster sessions for members of the public to participate in.
The festival aims to create a fun and welcoming environment in order to encourage those of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to take part in activities they may never have tried before, in the hope that they will be inspired to participate for the long term.
The inaugural Birmingham Inclusive Sports Fest took place in 2013 and saw over a hundred people of all ages take part in 40 different taster sessions across a variety of inclusive sports. Since this time the festival has touched the lives of a further 1800 people, resulting in some fantastic feedback and stories.
Booking for our BISF events is essential. Please see below to reserve your space for this year.
