This weekend, eBay will premiere a hilarious series of shows in the Bullring Birmingham, entitled Shop Live! with eBay. Taking place centre stage in the city’s shopping destination, the series of live performances will take place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th May.

In a tongue-in-cheek homage to home shopping television programmes, Shop Live! will consist of two interactive performances; each allowing the audience to take advantage of deals straight from the convenience of their mobiles, whilst they watch.
