Outing to Jewellery Quarter Museum and Soho House Birmingham
Thursday 14 March 2019

OUTING TO BIRMINGHAM

Cost £40
Leave Barton 8.45 am - Lichfield 9.15 am
Estimated return to Lichfield 4 pm

 

Trip to Birmingham to visit the Museum in the Jewellery Quarter for coffee/tea and biscuits followed by a tour with particular reference to Matthew Boulton and the Assay Office.  We will see a jeweller's workshop exactly as it was left many years ago when it was closed, abandoned and caught in a time warp.

We then travel to Soho House, the elegant home of Matthew Boulton for a soup and sandwich lunch followed by a tour of this beautiful house with its elegant furnishings, and hear about the connections with Lichfield, Darwin and the Lunar Society.
