Draw & Explore event – Sat 19 March 10.30am – 1pm

Discover the new Stirchley Baths with paper and pencils in hand at our ‘Draw & Explore’ event. Whatever your age or artistic experience, we invite you and your family to a drawing day led by Stirchley based artist Carla Smith who will help you get your creativity flowing. A selection of the drawings created on the day will be chosen to be framed and shown in the new exhibition area at the baths.

A behind the scenes look at the restoration of Stirchley Baths

With all the builders coming and going at the Baths we thought it would be nice if you could get a flavour of what they’ve been up to behind the hoardings, so, last week I  went on site to meet with Senior Site Manager Tony Fisher.

Tony showed us around and gave us an overview on what it takes to restore a building as old as ours. I think I agree with him when he talks about the renovation of the roof, those lanterns are pretty impressive.
