Birmingham Heritage Week has begun

Birmingham’s exciting culture and heritage is set to be celebrated over the next 10 days, following a launch event for Birmingham Heritage Week at Curzon Street Station.

The event hosted at the Grade I listed building, on Wednesday 7th September, officially kicked off the week (8th – 18th September) of over 200 events which will showcase Birmingham’s historic buildings, culture, history and people.

Visitors are encouraged to learn something new about Birmingham at the events taking place at city sites which include Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Aston Hall, Blakesley Hall, Sarehole Mill, Soho House, Museum of the Jewellery Quarter and Weoley Castle Ruins.

Attendees heard from Professor Carl Chinn, who gave a lively talk about why it is important to keep Birmingham’s rich history alive and remember the men and women who made the city what it is today.

He was joined by other speakers including, Cllr Waseem Zaffar, Chair of Birmingham Heritage Week, the Lord Mayor of Birmingham and Professor Ian Grosvenor of University of Birmingham. Birmingham Museums Trust has taken a leading role on the project this year and Alex Nicholson-Evans, Commercial Director at the Trust, also spoke about the vast array of events on offer.

Birmingham’s past and present were represented during the evening as guests were entertained by a spoken word poetry performance by Casey Bailey from Beatfreeks, which showed how young people are influencing the city’s culture today. Attendees also had their photos taken with Peckett No.1, a locomotive owned by the city and cared for by Vintage Trains at Tyseley Locomotive Works, which will be hosting the ‘Flying Scotsman’ during Birmingham Heritage Week.
