- He had been named after Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne following a public vote last month.
- Visitors including Sharon Osbourne saw the bull’s first performance this morning, which involved him moving his head and swishing his tail.
- Commuters were also joined by mayor Andy Street and boxer Delicious Orie as the bull was unveiled following a countdown, after being built behind screens.
Image caption, Visitors and commuters at the station saw the bull’s first performance “It’s like breathtaking, this is mammoth, huge, but it’s just brilliant isn’t it,” Sharon Osbourne said. “For Ozzy to be born and bred here and having spent so much time in this station, because of course he didn’t have a car, so he was everywhere from New Street,” she explained.
“He would never, ever, ever have thought that at this time in his life, this would happen.” Network Rail said they had been testing the bull’s movements and sound ahead of him meeting the public, to mark the games’ first anniversary two days later.

Thousands of people came to see the bull when he was temporarily on display in Centenary Square during the 12 days of the Games. He has since undergone a major redesign by his creators, special effects company Artem, to make him suitable to be put on permanent indoor display.
- Visitors to the station were taking part in face painting, enjoying a brass band and dance performances to celebrate the unveiling, Network Rail said.

What is going to happen to the bull after the Commonwealth Games?
The mechanical bull which wowed crowds at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games opening ceremony will be given a full-time home at New Street Station. The 10-metre tall creation, better known as the Raging Bull, is to be installed in the atrium of the station, Network Rail said.
- At the end of the Games, the mechanical marvel was seen by an estimated four million visitors while in its temporary home in Centenary Square.
- Then, in September 2022, it was moved to a car park in Ladywood, with a pledge it would be found a more fitting and final home.

- Ian Reid, Birmingham Commonwealth Games’ chief executive, said the location choice meant the bull would “continue to be a key attraction for visitors to Birmingham for years to come”.
- Meanwhile Cllr Ian Ward, Birmingham City Council leader, said: “It’s fantastic that we have been able to find a home for the Raging Bull in the heart of Birmingham.
“There were many stars during our unforgettable summer of sport and culture – but none were bigger and bolder than the bull.”
Where is the bull now?
The much-loved centrepiece to last year’s Commonwealth Games – Ozzy the bull – has been officially unveiled in his new home at Birmingham New Street station. Over the last month the huge moving mechanical sculpture has been installed on the station’s concourse for thousands of people to admire in the heart of Birmingham and at the heart of Britain’s railway network. This morning (Wednesday 26 July) more than half of the original cast members helped unveil the 10-metre-high beast, which has been named after Birmingham music legend Ozzy Osbourne. Watching on proudly was his wife, Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy’s older sister Jean Powell and Birmingham 2022 Gold medal winning super heavyweight boxer Delicious Orie.
- Today’s unveiling follows an overwhelming public vote for the Raging Bull to be renamed Ozzy – in honour of the Black Sabbath frontman who appeared as a surprise performance in the Games’ closing ceremony last year.
- Ozzy the bull’s new home at New Street has been made possible by Network Rail and the West Midlands Combined Authority.
Both organisations worked together with the Birmingham 2022 Games organisers to secure the future of the iconic artwork, when it was removed from public display last September. In February it was revealed that New Street station would become the bull’s new home, and a major six-month redesign and rebuilding project began.
Approx 50% of the original bull retained with the other half remade. New mechanisms installed so the bull can move its mouth, head, eyes, eyelids, and tail, and speakers to make it roar. The opportunity was taken to rebuild the legs and underside which will now be seen in full 360 degrees. The bull being painstakingly dismantled, trucked to the station and rebuilt Over 7,000 hours of work to make all of this happen
Today’s big reveal was timed to happen ahead of Birmingham Festival 23, which starts this Friday in Centenary Square to mark a year since the games began. Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “It’s wonderful to see Ozzy the Bull make its triumphant return to Birmingham – taking pride of place in New Street Station with this official unveiling.
Ozzy was the iconic and quite simply unforgettable centrepiece of the 2022 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony. One year on from the Games, it’s a brilliant reminder of the pride we all felt, perfectly captures the spirit of the Games and will be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. My thanks to Network Rail for providing a base fit for this hometown hero.” Peter, Lord Hendy of Richmond Hill, and Network Rail chair said: “We are really proud to have given Ozzy a new home at Birmingham New Street for thousands of people to enjoy, right at the heart of Britain’s railway network.
“A huge amount of work has gone into making this happen, by many, many people over many months. Ozzy will now not only be a reminder of last year’s unforgettable summer of sport, but also a new icon for the city and its future.” Gary Beestone, Birmingham 2022 Opening Ceremony technical director, said:”I’m delighted that the Bull that captured the imagination of so many in last summer’s show now has found a permanent home in the heart of the city creating an iconic meeting point which will capture people’s attention.” Mike Kelt, Artem Special Effects CEO, said: “It has been a delightful challenge to rebuild the Bull for the people of Birmingham, who reacted to it with such emotion during and after the Games.
- I feel that part of my soul now belongs to the city and hope to visit often to see how Ozzy is getting on.” On the unveiling day there has been a brass band, face painting and limited giveaways for people welcoming Ozzy to his new home in the heart of Birmingham.
- For the first ten days he will perform at quarter past the hour between 8am and 8pm, moving his head, roaring to the crowds and swishing his tail.

What is the Commonwealth bull made of?
Making of Birmingham’s raging bull: 2.5 tonnes of aluminum and fiberglass, 50 designers, 5 months to create, puppetry and software AT THE Birmingham Commonwealth Games, the city’s matador motif The Bull, has assumed iconic status from the Opening Ceremony.
- It now stands — snorting nostrils plus grappling hook tail and all — at the Centenary Square.
- While the original fiery Bull was freed from its metaphorical shackles and calmed down during the ceremony, the actual prop that was used has triggered a campaign to save it from the scrapyard and find a permanent home in Birmingham.
The jury is still out. “Discussions are ongoing about the onward life of this project,” Phil Batty, Director of Ceremonies, Culture and Queen’s Baton Relay, said. “We are delighted with the public’s response and emotional outpouring for our bull, one of the undisputed stars of our spectacular Opening Ceremony,” Batty said. A cast member approaches a giant mechanical bull during the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony. (AP Photo) Providing details of the making of the Bull, UK’s SFX major company, Artem, said putting together the 10-metre, self-propelled prop, which combines animatronics and puppetry, started in late January 2022 and took a team of about 50 people to design, build, mechanise and paint over a five-month period.
“It was made at Artem’s workshop. Individual parts were welded, shaped, moulded or soft fabricated in our workshops but once the frame of the bull was mounted on the telehandler (a jeep-like vehicle with a forklift), most of the work continued outside as it was too large to remain inside,” a spokesperson said.
While creative heads fleshed out the story of Birmingham’s history, Artem got down to assembling the piece de resistance. The Raging Bull is displayed during the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham. (AP Photo) Made of lightweight aluminium tube, forming a huge space frame, and moulded in fibreglass, the Bull was clad in Plastazote foam shapes to keep the weight to a minimum, just 2.5 tonnes. Performers stand around the Raging Bull’s armour during the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. (AP Photo) Sensors guided the telehandler’s speed as the Bull impressed with remarkable agility and mobility for what was essentially a machine. What started with old-style pencil sketching assumed the form of a sculptor’s clay maquette model.
But as supply chain delays of motors and gearboxes posed a threat, Artem went through three prototypes before being happy with the final structure. The mothership — an aluminium truss box structure — had everything attached to it for controls with the four legs mounted on the corners and the head plopped onto the central axis.
Aluminium tubes formed the ribs within which were fixed walkways and handrails so that puppeteers and special-effects technicians could access the parts and animate the head to move up/down and left/right with an extending neck. Raging Bull, Birmingham city centre.
- Vinnyman1 (@VinnymanOne) A dense foam formed the outer skin, and Victoriana/steampunk dressing — think Jane Austen corsets and coats and Victorian gowns — in industrial material made up the covering.
- The wheels of the telehandler, weighing 17 tonnes and brought from Europe, were stuffed with foam to prevent it from bouncing.
The Bull itself stayed light enough while withstanding the winds that blustered a tad on the day of the opening ceremony. Artem informed that the animation, which brought to life the face and a tail, was crucial to depict Birmingham’s rough journey — a central theme — even as smoke from the body and nostrils, tears of blood, and lighting from within, were the centrepieces of the visual effects.
- Armed with a KUKA 7-Axis robot arm, as well as 3D printing, and lathes and turret mills, the animatronics were achieved through a mix of puppetry and software.
- Artem is known for its props, atmospherics, prosthetics, models and miniatures, pyrotechnics, mechanical rigs, animatronics and special costumes.
It has worked on several well-known movie projects — “Trigger Point”, “The Man Who Fell To Earth”, “Pennyworth 2”, “Cinderella”, “Peter Rabbit 2”, “The Great”, “DEVs”, “Paddington 2”, “Macbeth”, “T2 Trainspotting”, “The Foreigner”, “Bodyguard” and the Harry Potter franchise’s “Cursed Child”.
But no 3D theatre experience came close to watching a giant bull with luminously alive eyes walking through the Alexander Stadium, and imprinting UK’s second city on the global audience. The messaging signified freedom and not bull-baiting of yore, and that was technology’s biggest victory of the night.
The Centenary Square awaits a verdict on the Bull that will outlive the Games. : Making of Birmingham’s raging bull: 2.5 tonnes of aluminum and fiberglass, 50 designers, 5 months to create, puppetry and software

How many medals India won in Birmingham?
India won 61 medals at Birmingham 2022. Know India’s CWG 2022 medal tally. (2022 Getty Images) From July 28 to August 8, nearly 200 Indian athletes competed for medals across 16 different sports at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. At the last edition at Gold Coast 2018, Indian athletes won a total of 66 medals, 26 gold and 20 silver and 20 bronze to finish third overall, behind hosts Australia and England.
However, shooting, which contributed 16 of the 66 medals at Gold Coast 2018, was cut from the Commonwealth Games program for Birmingham 2022, In fact, 135 of India’s total tally of 564 medals at the Commonwealth Games have come in shooting – more than any other sport. This includes the 30 medals Indian shooters won during the 2010 New Delhi CWG – where India enjoyed their most successful Commonwealth Games in history, winning a total of 101 medals.
Tokyo Olympics javelin champion and world championships silver medallist Neeraj Chopra’s late withdrawal from CWG 2022 due to injury certainly left India one medal short. In shooting and Neeraj Chopra’s absence, the onus was on the Indian wrestling contingent, featuring Olympic medallists Ravi Kumar Dahiya, Bajarang Punia and Sakshi Malik, and a strong badminton team, spearheaded by two-time Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and world championships medallist Kidambi Srikanth and Lakshya Sen, to drive India up the medals table in Birmingham.
The weightlifting team also carried the nation’s hopes. At CWG 2022, Indian athletes won 61 medals, 22 golds, 16 silvers and 23 bronze, at the Commonwealth Games 2022. Sanket Sargar was the first Indian to win a medal in Birmingham, bagging a silver in the men’s 55kg weightlifting event. Mirabai Chanu was the first Indian to win a gold at CWG 2022 while Jeremy Lalrinnunga was the first Indian man to clinch top podium at Birmingham.
Sudhir won the first medal for India, a gold, in para sports at the CWG 2022. He became the champion in the para powerlifting men’s heavyweight category.
