Birmingham 2022 – Plan ahead for closing ceremony (West Mids Police)

Dear Sir or madam,

After an incredible two weeks of sports and events, the closing ceremony for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games takes place tonight at Alexander Stadium.

Birmingham and surrounding areas will be busier than usual and there are some road closures in place, so plan ahead by visiting Get Set for the Games 2022 website. 

If you are going to the ceremony or celebrating the success of Birmingham 2022 afterwards, please read below to make sure you have a safe and fun evening. 

Here’s some tips:

Plan before you travel by checking Get Set for the Games.
You’ll see lots of police officers who are helping to keep you safe, so please ask if you need help.
Make sure you look out for each other and stay together.
Always use a licenced taxi.
Be aware of your surroundings when you are out and about.
Keep your valuables in sight at all times.
Secure your bag properly, if it’s easy for you to get into, it’ll be easy for a thief to get into.
In an emergency always call 999, for non-emergencies please use our live chat which is available from 8am – midnight, or call 101.

Kind Regards,
