Women’s Work in the Jewellery Quarter

Join us for a tour about the work undertaken by women from the late 1800’s until the 1980’s and the many vitally important jobs that women worked, from working in the office to manual work such as press work, polishing and enamelling.

These women were instrumental in not only making the jewellery quarter the world’s largest jewellery manufacturing area, but also making Birmingham the work shop of the world, city of a thousand trades.

These women are the often neglected heroines of the metal working trade. Working long hours in dirty, noisy, dangerous conditions, for very little pay. This tour celebrates their hard work and fortitude.
