Event description

Description

An evening of talks exploring the life and impact of Joseph Chamberlain on the city of Birmingham, the Jewellery Quarter, and beyond.

Our main speaker for the evening is Peter Marsh, Honorary Professor at the University of Birmingham and author of Joseph Chamberlain, Entrepreneur in Politics.. Peter will provide an overview of Joseph Chamberlain's life, views, work, and legacy.

The second half of the event will also feature guest contributions through short talks that will each explore aspects of Joseph Chamberlain's impact; from his family life at Highbury Hall, to the down-to-earth reality of the municipal reforms of the period at the Roundhouse; and finally, his impact on the international stage via the British Empire.

What Does This Have to Do With Roundhouse Birmingham?

The Roundhouse is currently undergoing renovations ready for a Spring 2020 opening. During that period, we are spreading the word about our project by partnering up with other heritage, community, and cultural organisations to explore aspects of the city's heritage; as well as taking part in community events over the next year. The proceeds from the event will contribute to the project to re-vive the Roundhouse.
