Celebration Talk & Tour: Women's Work in the Jewellery Quarter
Join us for a special costumed guided tour and talk celebrating the women of the Jewellery Quarter.
Hear about the work undertaken by women from the late 1800’s until the 1980’s and the many vitally important jobs that women worked, from working in the office to manual work such as press work, polishing and enamelling.
These women were instrumental in not only making the jewellery quarter the world’s largest jewellery manufacturing area, but also making Birmingham the work shop of the world, city of a thousand trades.
