The bull addresses the Bull Ring, Birmingham’s retail plaza, which itself, got its name from its set of experiences of bull-goading and butcher.

Around 1160, a sanction conceded the Lord of the Manor of Berm, Peter de Bermingham, consent to hold a week-after-week market at his moated estate where he required tolls on the merchandise and products sold.

The ‘ring’ a piece of the area’s ongoing name alludes to a circle of iron, to which bulls were tied for teasing before butcher.

In the sixteenth 100 years, bear-goading turned into a famous ‘sport’. It included onlookers at the Bull Ring watching canines assault an unprotected bull and some wrongly accepted it softened the meat.

Bull-teasing halted at the Bull Ring in 1798 when it moved to Handsworth, however, the site kept its presently renowned name.

The principal Bull Ring mall remained on the site for quite some time from 1964 until destruction started in the year 2000. The much-defamed building’s 1960s substantial engineering had in no time matured. In its place, a milestone new retail plaza was fabricated, and the name Bullring was adapted for the opening in 2003.
