Pick Up a Picnic and Raise the Roof for St Paul’s Church!
St Paul’s Church, a Grade 1 listed building, has stood at the heart of the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham for 240 years. As part of Birmingham Heritage Week, the St.Paul’s Summer Fete will see the grounds of the church thrown open for a public picnic with plenty of fun-filled activities. The Summer Fete will help fundraise the £150,000 needed to urgently repair the church roof in order to stop further internal damage and to fix considerable damage to the interior of the church caused by recent flooding.
The Fete takes place over two days with a picnic from 2 pm on Saturday 14th September followed by a food and craft event on Sunday 15th from 12 pm onwards. Expect food trucks organized by Uniqueeat Street Food, drinks, live music, classic cars, beauty & fitness with stalls representing the creators and creatives from the Jewellery Quarter and beyond. You will also get a chance to take a tour of the building, experiencing the beauty of this city treasure, learn some local history and find out who’s walked through its doors over the years.
The Hive JQ are providing the Saturday picnics for a £15 donation. Sample delicious, organic, homemade treats from the local social enterprise cafe. Sunday will see a host of street food trucks serving up great grub all day. The picnic boxes are limited so make sure you pre-purchase yours to avoid disappointment.
If you want to support St Paul’s but can’t make the weekend, you can donate online.
