Each year, the JQBID takes part in Birmingham Heritage Week to promote the Jewellery Quarter’s fascinating heritage to the public.
Birmingham Heritage Week is an event run by Birmingham Museums Trust and is a platform that the JQBID use to promote the many museums, attractions and art galleries that reside in the Jewellery Quarter.
For the past three years, the JQBID has supported Birmingham Heritage Week through sponsorship and either facilitating or running heritage events.
2018 and 2019
In 2018, the JQBID published a promotional leaflet that collated over 25 events taking place in the Jewellery Quarter and in 2019 the JQBID became the main sponsor. Aligning the Jewellery Quarter to Birmingham Heritage Week allowed the JQBID to continue its promotion of the area as a destination to come and visit and explore. 2019 also saw the JQBID organise a number of local walking tours.
In 2020, with the pandemic putting a stop to all in-person events, the JQBID created a dedicated webpage to promote all of the JQ heritage virtual events that were taking part during the week. The webpage (https://jewelleryquarter.net/heritage-week/) was the central platform for all Jewellery Quarter activity.
