An extraordinary tour developed for Heritage Open Days 2018 is back by popular demand!

Join us for a special tour focusing on the extraordinary women who worked for Newman Brothers, their contribution to Birmingham history and industry but also the personal stories of how they ‘made a living out of dying’. The tour will last just over 1 hour.

Following the tour there will be the opportunity to watch Oral History interviews with some of the former staff and people who knew them in the Green Room (named after Joyce Green, final owner of Newman Brothers).
