Shining a light on the best independent shops and venues – Lowdown allows the user to discover the city on the move.

Lowdown is currently a web application (www.lwdwn.com) that is an independent venue listings engine for the Central Birmingham area (iOS and Android applications arriving early 2015).

A major objective of this application is to highlight independent shops and venues and to improve way-finding in the city for our users (locals and tourists alike), to enable them to find out about historical, cultural and architectural aspects of the city whilst they navigate around.

In addition, users can now browse events at venues listed as well as see what is on nearby (500m of user’s location), so locals and visitors alike will always have the lowdown of what is going on in the city.
