Birmingham’s most iconic reggae troupe and Christmas…name a better duo…we’ll wait. Swap your Red, Red, Wine for Mulled, Mulled Wine (or lemonade) and get ready for the ultimate night out this December! 


Featuring UB40’s five founding members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Lawrence Parry and Tony Mullings, the band return home for the ultimate

The band formed right here in Birmingham back in the late 70’s and went on to not only dominate, shape and influence the reggae genre, but the music industry as a whole. Honestly, have you ever been to a party or wedding without linking your arms with you buddies and belting our Red, Red Wine (if you say no, then you’re a liar).

It’s been a rollercoaster career for UB40, but they are back and they couldn’t complete a return without a homecoming – and what better time to see the boys than in December! It’ll be festive, spirits will be high and there’s zero doubt that the atmosphere will be electric.

They will be giving us all the hits, ya’know, like  ‘Food For Thought’, ‘One In Ten’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You’ and of course ‘Red, Red Wine’

Whether you’re thinking of a work night out with your colleagues or you’re looking to get the gang back together for your annual Christmas meet up, starting your night with UB40 at Arena Birmingham is easily the best way to do it.
