An exciting opportunity to use, hold and share vintage LGBT + themed objects from our handling collection. From rare books to textiles and clothes, magazines and photographs, join us for a fascinating afternoon exploring hidden 1960’s LGBT + heritage from our region and beyond.

Share memories, relax to music and news clips from the decade, and use our unique objects in conjunction with powerful artwork to explore a decade of decriminalisation.

Tea, coffee, good company and a warm welcome await you. Whether you were there first time or want to explore the decade through real objects, all are welcome to share stories, memories and reactions.

On hand to join us will be the team from Collecting Birmingham, experts on collecting local history offering advice on how to share your story or record memories. Read the Collecting Birmingham blog posts to find out more.
