GEM OF A PLACE: A theatrical journey through the Jewellery Quarter

Take a theatrical journey through the heart of Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter this September as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival. Gem Of A Place, taking place during Birmingham Heritage Week, leads audiences through side streets, past old factories and into some of the area’s most secret spaces. As they head through the historic streets, people will encounter six dramatic stories, each exploring a unique aspect of this distinctive area, plus there’ll be plenty of surprises along the way.

Starting at the famous landmark of the Chamberlain Clock in Golden Square, the show lasts an hour and runs three times a day at 11.30am, 2pm and 5pm from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September, and from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th September. Audience members will also have a chance to chat with writers and creatives at The Hive Café in Frederick Street after each performance.

Gem of a Place takes place on public pavements, in some buildings, and the route does include some steps. Visitors are advised to wear suitable footwear and outdoor clothing. The Jewellery Quarter is in Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone and is extremely well-placed for public transport links and visitors are encouraged to use public transport wherever possible.

Due to the nature of this walking event, places are limited. Tickets can be booked at: www.gemofaplace2022.eventbrite.co.uk. Further information can be found at: www.boldtextcollective.com or by calling 07947 889534.
