Our next JQNF Social will be a drop-in session at
JW Evans Factory
Tuesday 28th January 6.30 – 8.30pm
57 Albion Street, Birmingham, B1 3EA
JQ Evans want to consult with the local community, for our input to help turn the factory into a vibrant, sustainable and popular heritage attraction. The workshops of the J. W. Evans Silver Factory are crammed with intricate tools and presses, preserved as though the workers have just clocked off for the day. It’s a rare survivor from an era when master craftsmen at small specialist family firms produced a vast amount of fine jewellery, silverware and metalwork.
You can help shape the future of the factory by sharing your thoughts on what heritage means to you, and what you look for in a great day out. Please join us on the evening of 28th January to see what is behind the doors of J.W. Evans, and share your views and suggestions of how the factory, and wider heritage can be incorporated into the thriving JQ.
You will see a section of the site, and get a feel for the scale and contents, and answer some questions to help us get to know you.
– This is a drop in session, so you can join at a time to suit, have a wander, bring friends/family who may be interested in contributing.
– There is no bar on site, but there will be welcome refreshments served.
– Members of the JQNF will also be at the factory, so you also have the opportunity to meet some of your neighbours and find out more about the Jewellery Quarter Neighbourhood Forum.
This is a drop in session and there is no need to book. But it would be useful for us to gauge numbers, so if you’re planning to attend please register via Eventbrite by clicking here
Please note: If you attend, you will be asked to help evaluate the drop in session, and may be photographed. The nature of this factory site means uneven floor surfaces and unregulated temperatures. This study has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
