Birmingham Heritage Week

9th September – 19th September 2021


The annual festival returns from 9th to 19th September 2021 revealing the City’s hidden stories and historical secrets. With many of us living in the Lapworth and surrounding areas having links to the Birmingham area, Birmingham Heritage Week is an opportunity to discover parts of the City hidden from everyday life and rediscover popular places from a new perspective. Visitors to the City will be invited on hard hat tours of gasholders and catacombs and welcomed through the doors of magnificent mansions, churches and Victorian swimming baths.

Many of the events are free of charge but it is advisable to check prior to visiting and also to check whether pre-booking is required.
