Celebrating the Jewellery Quarter: Past and Future

Join us as we celebrate the heritage of the Jewellery Quarter at the School of Jewellery, exploring themes of making, trade and innovation in this historic area. Find out about the Townscape Heritage project, a programme to restore and regenerate the Jewellery Quarter industrial middle, inspire communities to find out more about their local heritage and give people the chance to learn new skills.

During the evening, guests can enjoy:

  • A Townscape Heritage Project Zone
    Find out about the project, explore the area through historic photos and maps, or dress up as a historic Jewellery Quarter character!
  • Casting Demonstrations
    View practical demonstrations of the casting technique, a key part of the jewellery manufacturing process.
  • Film Screenings
    Jewellery Quarter archive footage, and the new Townscape Heritage film.
  • Vittoria Street Gallery
    Exhibition of work by local schools.
  • Student Exhibition
    Recent work from BCU School of Jewellery students.
