Birmingham’s popular Heritage Week will return for its tenth year in September 2024.

The city-wide festival celebrates its tenth birthday in September by shining a spotlight on more historic Birmingham buildings, churches and heritage locations than ever with a series of talks, tours, workshops, walks and much more.

Running from Friday 6 - Sunday 15 September, Birmingham Heritage Week is an opportunity to explore and discover your area and some of the city’s buildings and outdoor spaces you would not normally visit.

Local organisations are currently busy organising their events for this year and all events will go live on 3 August at 5pm, when bookings can be made through the Birmingham Heritage Week website.

Over the 10-day festival, events will be taking place across Birmingham. There will be hundreds of different events, walks and tours to choose from: cemeteries, canal tours, historic buildings, factories, museums, religious buildings and outdoor heritage tours in local parks, neighbourhoods and conservation areas.

A stunning Arts & Crafts house in Harborne will be opening its doors to visitors for the first time as part of Heritage Week 2024.

Buildings offering guided tours include the landmark Rotunda building, The Council House, The Exchange, Highbury Hall, Handsworth Old Town Hall, Tudor Merchant’s House and Old Grammar School, both Kings Norton, and many more to come.

Cannon Hill House, St Mary’s Convent in Handsworth, Oscott College, the Grand Hotel on Colmore Row, West Midlands Police Museum, Aston Fire Station, Coffin Works in the Jewellery Quarter, New Hall Mill in Sutton Coldfield also feature during the week of events.

Birmingham Assay Office will open its doors and at Woodcock Street Baths, you can have a swim in the oldest swimming pool in Birmingham, dating back to 1902.
