JQ Life Issue One is here!

The brand-new Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID) magazine has landed!

Formerly Quarter Life, the fresh-look JQ Life magazine is full of news, updates, features and information about the Jewellery Quarter.

Following the renewal of the JQBID for an additional five-year term last year, the magazine was revamped and offers a fresh angle on the people of the JQ; whether they are employees, business owners, students or residents.

Features in this issue include a preview of our JQ Festival (page 10-13), an interview with award-winning chef Aktar Islam about his recently opened Indian restaurant ‘Opheem’ (page 24-45), and an opinion-piece “In Their Own Words” with Marion Wilson, the Academy Director at the Birmingham Assay Office (page 16-21).

The magazine will be distributed around Birmingham and will be available to collect at the JQ’s cafés, bars and restaurants.

We hope that you enjoy the magazine and if you would like to share it with those around you.

A digital version is also available to read on our website.
