As part of our participation in Birmingham Heritage Week, we were honoured to be given a walking tour of the Jewelley Quarter by Jez Collins. The tour had a musical theme and Jez has a wealth of knowledge. It really made us look at our neighbourhood differently. We take inspiration from this colourful past.
Below are some pictures that relate to the tour:
Alex’s Pie Stand – near Snow Hill station – where bands would congregate to talk about the gigs they had just played across the UK in the 1960s:
The Cedar Club – formerly of Constitution Hill – and Patti of this club and New Order playing there on 10 April 1981:
