I'd like to introduce our venue, the Birmingham & Midland Institute, as a space for meetings, meet-ups, events and conferences. We're located right in the city centre on Margaret Street and easily accessible from train stations and local bus stops. Our Grade II* listed (mustn't forget the '*'!) building has rooms and theatres that can accommodate 2 - 250 people. We also have an in-house coffee lounge that serves lunch and refreshments, plus catering for larger events. Most importantly, we have free wifi throughout the building for our users!
The Institute was established in 1854 for educating residents of Birmingham and the Midlands, focussing on Science, Art and Literature. Education is still at the core of our remit; we hold lectures, concerts and informal day courses, plus we are the home of the original Birmingham Library. We offer membership to the Institute as well and individuals receive exclusive access to our library, Members' Room and use of our coffee lounge, plus discount off events.
If anyone is interested in joining as a Member (rates start at just £16.50 per year, we're currently offering 16 months for the price of 12) or would like to enquire about room hire rates, please do not hesitate to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 0121 2363591
