Black Sabbath Bridge, Birmingham






‘Black Sabbath Bridge’ is now officially a Birmingham landmark.

Two founding members of the Brummie mega group yesterday attended the public event at the road bridge which crosses the canal on Broad Street.

Watched on by hundreds of Sabbath fans eager to catch a glimpse of two Brummie icons, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler arrived in true Birmingham style, travelling by narrowboat to unveil the new bridge signage from the canal below.

As well as the new bridge name, a ‘heavy metal bench’ incorporating images of the band’s original four members is now permanently based on the bridge, which is expected to draw hundreds and thousands of tourists to the city and the canal network.

The bench is inscribed "Geezer. Ozzy. Tony. Bill. Made in Birmingham 1968'.

Renowned tribute band Sabbra Cadabra had provided the entertainment beforehand, belting out hit after hit from the canal island opposite the National Sea Life Centre.

After the presentation, Butler and Iommi were only too eager to say thank you to the fans who had attended, before going on an autograph spree.

Sabbath will also get their own Birmingham Walk of Stars, with plans to also give drummer Bill Ward one, before realigning them into the shape of a cross in front of the bench. 

The unveiling coincides with a major Home Of Metal exhibition celebrating Black Sabbath and the band's legacy called "Black Sabbath 50 Years". It runs until September 29 at Birmingham Museum And Art Gallery.

A brand new Community of Passion for Music and Musicians





We'd like to tell you about a new Community of Passion to be supported and run off FreeTimePays digital technology. Music We Are is completely devoted to promoting the passion of Music. With access to a powerful suite of engagement tools, Music We Are supports ideas, initiatives, ventures and campaigns that make a difference to people and community and contribute to positive social impact. 

 

Take the article and find out more about Music We Are. 

 


 

FreeTimePays has produced a unique digital channel for the promotion of music and the engagement of people who are passionate about music. 

 

 

This space can be found at www.MusicWeAre.com.

 

Music We Are is a collaborative space for projects, initiatives and ideas and promotes the delivery of positive social impact through music. 

 

Music We Are is a digital space devoted to creating positive social impact by engaging people (and organisations) in the shared passion of music.

 

 

 

FreeTimePays is an on-the-go engagement solution that can be used on all devices from mobiles to laptops and all functions are accessible via www.MusicWeAre.com

 

 

 

At FreeTimePays, we engage with people who want to make a difference, are keen to be involved in positive social change, and want to share their passion for Music.  

 

Music is one of our 20+ passions, and we have established www.MusicWeAre.com as the first of our websites for promoting a shared passion for music. Through this domain, we will connect and engage with people keen to become part of this Community of Passion and provide them with access to a range of FreeTimePays digital tools.    

 

 

Let us show what we have created and explain the tools available to you, whether your interest lies as an investor, a sponsor of a music initiative or campaign, or as a contributor keen to share your passion for music. 

 

 

At FreeTimePays, we are all about making a difference and by bringing together people who share passions we will help them make a difference for themselves, for their family and within their community.

 

 

For people who get involved, share passions and help make a difference, the option exists to run a form of gamification that rewards people and recognises the time they are prepared to put in. 

 

 

Music We Are will develop and grow as a global engagement channel. This initiative has been created in Birmingham and will be rolled out during 2018.

 

The plan is for a public launch of the site in Spring 2018.  

 

 

Music We Are is scalable and adaptable and can grow in many directions as decided by the community. 

 

 

 

Birmingham We Are, It's Your Wales, It's Your Build and a growing number of engagement sites across the UK are already being powered by FreeTimePays digital technology.

 

Music We Are is currently in beta test while discussions take place with investors and partners.    

 

 

 

FreeTimePays is a unique social media channel and collaborative environment and is the result of 18 months design & build.

 

FreeTimePays satisfies the demand of social media users for a space that provides a variety of functions that, up until now, have only been possible by combining different social media channels.

 

 

Community Passport gives people their own personalised space where they can demonstrate their passion, engage in activities and collect points for sharing passions.

 

 

Community Workspace is a secure access rights environment where people can work on their  projects (alone or with others) and make a positive impact within their community.

 

 

Community Matchmaker exists so that champions of great ideas can take their idea and their passion to the next level. They can share and collaborate with other people, work on their great ideas and consider and access alternative funding channels.

 

The idea can even be packaged and a pitch prepared giving project access to investors, philanthropists, the lottery and/or crowd-funders.

 

 

People, communities and stakeholders can choose to interact with the FreeTimePays platform and make use of the digital space in many different ways.  They can build resource, run their own projects within their very own workspace and create posts for public viewing by people who share their passion.

 

 

People, communities and stakeholders can choose to interact with the FreeTimePays platform and make use of the digital space in many different ways. Access rights are completely flexible according to need. 

 

 

 

Gamification is a key feature of the FreeTimePays digital space and is flexible and adaptable. Should you decide to run with a campaign with some form of gamification and reward and recognise people for helping to make a difference, then this can be designed and introduced to suit the you and your community.

 

 

This is only the start of our journey. The digital journey we have mapped out embraces all that’s new and engaging. Come on the journey with us, help us grow communities of influence, create real and positive impact and generate the return and reward from being involved with FreeTimePays.
