New Year's Eve in Oldbury-Smethwick in 2013/ 2013 - turn of the year in the West Midlands

Smethwick-Oldbury, forming the new County Borough of Warley, lies in the West Midlands of England and has a total population of almost 140,000 residents. Despite its strong economic links with Birmingham, due to the busy and highly profitable industrial past they share, the place has a very strong sense of identity, which will definitely contribute to leaving positive feelings on those choosing to spend the New Year's Eve in Oldbury-Smethwick in 2012/ 2013.

Originally an Anglo-Saxon settlement, the place is said to take its present-day name from ‘Smith's workplace', as its history of metal working dates back to the 16th century. From the rural community of farms and cottages, such as Smethwick Grove or Lightwoods House, Smethwick has evolved to the bustling community of today. Tourists coming to celebrate the New Year's Eve in Oldbury/Smethwick in 2012/ 2013 will have the opportunity to discover the numerous attractions of the area, from the National Sea Life Centre to the Ikon Gallery - one of Europe's premier venues for contemporary art, with exhibitions of worldwide innovative and challenging artists.
