Birmingham Back to Backs 20th Birthday

To celebrate our birthday, we’re inviting you to take a look around our houses for free and enjoy some courtyard crafts

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event

The Birmingham Back to Backs first opened to the public twenty years ago. To celebrate this we are having a special free open weekend. You will be able to explore the back-to-back houses with the help of some of our wonderful volunteers, see behind-the-scenes photographs of the renovation, and participate in some crafts in our courtyard.

The event is free but we recommend that you prebook your space to avoid any disappointment on the day.

Please note that we are not running guided tours for this event.

We have the following time slots for booking; 10.30am-1pm or 1.30pm-4.30pm (last entry to the property will be 4pm, with the property closing at 4.30pm). These are just for guidance. You can spend as much or as little time as you like exploring the property.
