Town Hall - Birmingham September 13th 10:30 am

I have at last been able to arrange a suitable date to have a guided tour of the Town Hall in Birmingham.  Note this is not the Birmingham Council House  but the Hall built in 1836 as a concert hall.  It is famous for its concert pipe organ which hopefully we will hear being played during our visit.  The building is steeped in history.


The visit has been arranged for Thursday 13th September 2018 starting at 10:30 am. Cost £8.00 per person to be paid by the September Core Meeting.
