Don’t forget……Thursday 10th September sees the start of the inaugural Birmingham Heritage Week 2015. Why not have a look at all the great events across the City and discover something amazing about Birmingham? Birmingham Heritage Week runs from 10th – 17th September and please show your support by visiting the website to see what’s on and then go along maybe to one of the tours, open house days, talks or to see the displays that are on show. It coincides with Heritage Open Days (10th – 13th September) which is the UKs biggest Heritage festival. You can search their website for what’s on in your area. Events include tours from Birmingham Cathedral (celebrating 300 years this year) to the Newman Brothers Coffin Works. It’s worth a look!

We would also recommend reading the article by the chairman of Birmingham Heritage Week, Waseem Zaffar, about the importance of Birmingham and its history. You can read it online on the Birmingham Mail website.
