Red Brick Heart & Soul 10.00-11.45

The University of Birmingham campus has an amazing story to tell. From the benevolence of Josiah Mason, Birmingham industrialist who set up a science college in Edmund Street in Birmingham town centre to the driving force of Joseph Chamberlain, the first Chancellor who saw the creation of the first red brick campus university modelled on the American style. We see the origins of the site as a Roman fort, the development of the site from the early 1900s to the present day. We discover architecture and public art all around but it is what goes on inside the buildings that gives the heart and soul and who better than retired Honorary Professor and author Jonathan Berg to lead you such an exploration. There are a few surprises along the way and local people and visitors alike will equally enjoy this tour.
