This very special instameet, brought to you by IGers Birmingham and Ben McPhee, will you give you access to one of Birmingham’s hidden historical secrets, the original mail tunnel that connects the Mailbox to New Street Station.
There will be two trips down to the tunnel, with 10 places available in each group. Each group will have one hour to explore and photograph the tunnel. The timings of these groups will be:
Group 1 – 10:00 – 11:00
Group 2 – 11:00 – 12:00
Places for each group will be awarded by a random ballot on the 19th of October at 8pm, with winners being notified by email that night. Entrants to the ballot MUST be available to be placed in either group 1 or 2.
This instameet comes with specific qualification criteria that must be met. These criteria are as follows:
1. Entrants to the ballot MUST have a camera (DSLR, or mirrorless) and a tripod. The tunnel is very dark and smartphone cameras will not work in the tunnel.
2. Entrants to the ballot MUST be available to be placed in either group 1 or 2.
IF A BALLOT WINNER ATTENDS THE EVENT WITHOUT THE REQUIRED CAMERA EQUIPMENT THEY WILL BE TURNED AWAY AND WILL NOT BE GIVEN ACCESS TO THE TUNNEL.
