Exploring Curzon Street – unearthing railway heritage and discovering local stories

Come to Millennium Point for our hourly timed talks on themes around the history and heritage of the Curzon Street area including the original Curzon Street railway station and terminus building. The talks will also explore the archaeological burial investigations that will be taking place around Park Street. You will hear from our on-site archaeologists discussing their research and findings so far, giving us a fascinating insight into Birmingham’s past. Our archaeologists will also be exhibiting their Time Truck ‘Archaeology on Wheels’ to give a hands-on experience of archaeology. 

You can also take part in a timed visit inside the old Curzon Street Station terminus building, not usually open to the public, taking a glimpse into the past and also looking forward to the future of this treasured Grade I listed building. Sign up and pick a time for a visit using the Eventbrite link below. 

As well as exploring the past at Curzon Street, we would also like to hear your stories and memories of the local area and will be recording these on the day as part of our local oral history project using our pop-up recording studio, set up in.
