Sunday 20th December 2020, 13:30 - 15:30. Discovering Birmingham
Discovering Birmingham; Understand today's city in its historical context
Whether you have lived in Birmingham all your life, are studying at one of our five Unis, or are just visiting for a day, you will have a great time on tour. Guides are local people with a wealth of knowledge who deliver a fun tour of the city.
- Take the 'secret canal' to the Jewellery Quarter and understand industries from artisan jewellers to giant enterprises who dominated the world.
- See where the city is heading into the future
- Black Lives Matter - appreciate Birmingham's role in and reliance on the 17th and 18th century slave trade.
This is simply a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
