In one month’s time the IGers Birmingham exhibition that is currently on display at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter will come to an end. Before it ends we will be holding an instameet in the museum itself. The museum is built around a perfectly preserved jewellery workshop offering a unique glimpse of working life in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter.
When the proprietors of the Smith & Pepper jewellery manufacturing firm retired in 1981 they simply ceased trading and locked the door, unaware they would be leaving a time capsule for future generations.
Today the factory is a remarkable museum, which tells the story of the Jewellery Quarter and Birmingham’s renowned jewellery and metalworking heritage.
This is a limited numbers event.
Time: 2:45pm – 4pm
Date: Monday 7th May
Cost: The Museum have kindly waived the entrance fee, but do bring some cash with you to give a donation.
