After great feedback from our first walking tour with Kevin, we've booked some more for you....
This time join Kevin on a walk around the hidden Art Deco buildings of Birmingham City Centre, and the work of Birmingham's foremost sculptor William Bloye.
Birmingham is a city of change and a city of hidden architectural gems. Look carefully and you can find fantastic Art Deco building everywhere.
William Bloye was Birmingham's unofficial civic sculptor. His work can be seen all over Birmingham adorning everything from hospitals to pubs, and even a supermarket! The tour is about 2 miles and takes approximately 2 hours.
The terrain is mainly flat but good mobility is required as we will be in an urban landscape. If you're interested in Birmingham, its history and architecture, this is for you.
The Exhibition Birmingham Art Deco & William Bloye will be at the Gunmakers Arms September 2018. For more information www.ktphoto.co.uk
