An afternoon in Birmingham

Just a few weeks ago I was at the media launch of the new Birmingham Conservatoire, now the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

This is the new home of the music school of Birmingham City University, the old one being demolished as part of the Paradise Circus rejuvenation works.

Living my DSLR at home, I used my mobile phone for the afternoon, easy to carry and less intrusive.

The Conservatoire consists of one main concert hall, one purpose built Jazz space, a recital hall, organ room and a project space, in addition to countless rehearsal and practice rooms scattered around the building.

The interior of the building is impressive and is a high standard, this is just the first class facility that the city needs. Looking forward to seeing it well used, and visiting myself as a customer, looking forward to watching some Jazz, and sampling their new beer.
