An evening of presentations and conversations; exploring approaches to protecting special places in Birmingham.

About this Event

Presented in partnership by Roundhouse Birmingham and Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage.

Supported by Birmingham Architectural Association and Birmingham Heritage Week.

Ever wanted to know more about how the heritage industry works?

Join us for an evening of conversations and presentations; taking a look behind the scenes at range of projects to protect, restore, and to re-purpose our historic buildings and places across Birmingham . This will include the work at Moseley Rd Baths, various locations in the Jewellery Quarter, and the Roundhouse.

For the second half of the evening, we’ll hear from a panel of experts, each working in different roles within local heritage organisations. We’ll be discussing the challenges - and the solutions to those challenges - that are faced by people with a passion for saving places in the second city.

The panel session will also be opened up for audience questions. You can submit a question in advance, as part of the booking process.

The full line-up of speakers will be announced soon.
