The bull receives an early Christmas present

We’ve given the bull an early Christmas, his very own Christmas jumper.

As it’s Christmas we thought we’d do something special for the much-loved bull. He will be wearing his new sparkly Christmas jumper for the next couple of weeks so be sure to drop by to see it.

The Christmas jumper has been created by Stitches and Hos. Formed in 2006 the group are enthusiasts for all things knitted, crocheted and stitched, and have created stitched chaos for a number of events including Moseley Folk Festival. You can find out more about Stitches and Hos at www.stitchesandhos.co.uk.

If you’re at the centre over the next few days be sure to send us your pictures on Twitter by tweeting @bullring and using the #sparkle hashtag.

What do you think of the bull’s sparkly Christmas jumper? Let us know by commenting below…

And a big thank you to Urban Pie for providing the Stitches and Hos team with a complementary meal!

This "urban knitting “ is becoming really popular; I think it's great fun! Earlier this year, Birmingham Parks Department loaned us (Witton Lodge Community Association) a prototype model of the Bull Ring Bull and local volunteers knitted a wonderful patchwork coat for him. It was a fantastic community project and I wish I could post a photo of him on here. The Bull became rather well known and has done personal appearances at various venues and is off to the Chelsea Flower Show next year too! We will be sorry to say goodbye but we are fundraising to have a “prototype” of our own made specially.
Good luck with this project – I hope it all goes as well as ours did. Very rewarding.
Best wishes.
