Since 1997 Fierce has been capturing the imagination of the city of Birmingham with memorable public artworks such as the 'Birdman of Birmingham' — a giant nest (and live-in birdman) installed on the iconic Bullring Rotunda or Luke Jerram's incredible Sky Orchestra which put the CBSO Orchestra in hot air balloons playing over peoples houses in the early hours of the morning.

Though to our core audience were best known for the many legendary dark and messy parties of provocative performance art and avant garde cabaret that have earned us a reputation as one of the most daring and uninhibited arts organisations in the country.
