Birmingham Heritage Week is a city-wide festival that celebrates the city’s rich and fascinating history.
If you were asked to name one of the most iconic buildings in Birmingham city centre, chances are one of the first to spring to mind would be the Rotunda. On Sunday 23rd June I was part of a small group who spent an hour taking in the cityscapes below.
Back in February I attended a concrete-centric photomeet which was organised by West Midlands Photo Collective in conjunction with architectural model makers Space_Play.
A few weeks ago I was part of a small meet up held by Brutiful Birmingham at the William Mitchell murals under Hockley Flyover alongside representatives from various Birmingham based 20th Century and Modernist groups.
For this Instameet Igers Birmingham teamed up with Flatpack Film Festival as part of Flatpack’s ten year anniversary coincidentally it was also World Wide Instameet Day 13.
To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Lunar Society Igers Birmingham held an instameet at Soho House which was the home of the industrialist and entrepreneur Matthew Boulton from 1766 to 1809.
You can probably tell from my posts so far I have a passion for discovering new things and for Heritage so when I found out via Twitter that Drinks Thing was coming to Birmingham and their first event would be held at Newman Brothers Coffin Works I couldn’t sign up fast enough!
Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is world renowned amongst the jewellery industry. It is also an area that boasts an abundance of stunning architecture and luckily for us vintage Volvos (see below) I think this was the most popular photographed item of the day! I always forget how close the Jewellery Quarter is to the city
On 19th March I joined IgersBirmingham, Visit Birmingham and local architect Tim Cornbill for a walking tour of some of Birmingham’s most iconic locations.
