We are pleased to invite you to join group facilitator Perm Bhachu for our next in-person get together for festive fun at The Coffin Works Museum in Birmingham.

Due to popular demand we are delighted to be returning to the Newman Brothers Coffin Works museum for a special festive audio described touch tour of this fantastic historical landmark. Please come and join Perm and the group for a catch up over coffee at the museum cafe followed by the guided tour. As a festive treat, Perm has very generously put together a goodie bag for everyone that attends on the day. (Please note that the goodie bag does contain chocolates so please let Perm know upon receipt if you have any allergies or dietary requirements such as nuts, gluten etc.)

The Coffin Works is a heritage attraction located on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. Their grade II listed factory and its contents tells the story of Newman Brothers, Birmingham’s last coffin-furniture manufacturers who operated from this Fleet Street premises for over 100 years. In 1998 the factory workers laid down their equipment and walked out of the building for the very last time, leaving everything behind.
