On Coffee Birmingham day (September 29th 2012), Midlands Discovery Tours in association with Coffee Birmingham will present The Spirit of Birmingham.
“Join an expert local Blue Badge tourist guide for a very special walking tour of Birmingham.
The tour is a celebration of Birmingham as a city of creativity, innovation and enterprise, from its earliest days to modern times.
As we walk the streets of the modern city centre and Jewellery Quarter, you will discover how Birmingham has always been a place that has welcomed and encouraged original thinking, and hear stories of some of the men and women who took advantage of that spirit. Find out how local people’s ideas shaped the world around them, and how independent Birmingham businesses became household names.
But as tour guide Ian Braisby will introduce, it’s not just about the past – we will also explore modern Birmingham’s thriving independent scene and some of the key locations and areas where it can be found.
Covering everything from music, art and literature to industry and, of course, food and drink, this very special tour is an entertaining and informative look at a city that has always lived up to its motto “Forward”.
These events are very popular and offered on a first-come first-served basis so book your place early.
