Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Birmingham Architecture Festival


Birmingham’s Architecture Festival returns for a second year at the end of next month. Running from 23 – 26 May the festival will celebrate and explore the nooks and crannies of the city with guided tours, exhibitions, talks, film screenings and workshops.

Tickets are now on sale. Highlights include:

‘Redbrick, Brutalist and Beyond…’ – Discover over 100 years of architecture, all located within a mile radius on University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston campus. From redbrick Chancellor’s Court, to Arts & Crafts University House, to the glass and concrete of 1969’s Muirhead Tower, the tour will reveal the eclectic and the experimental collection of architecture on campus… loved or loathed!

Portable Camera Obscura – A Camera Obscura on wheels will be roaming the city over the festival weekend.

Moseley Photography Walking Tour – Join Attilio Fuimarella, a Birmingham-based photographer with an architectural background on a photo walk of Moseley. He has been undertaking a commission at the beautiful Moseley Baths for Some Cities, and conveniently, the tour also starts there.
