Join us on the 18th December at 2pm at The Maggies pub on Shirley Road/School Road, Hall Green, Birmingham. This Art Deco pub was considered a good demonstration of the ‘Reformed’ public house movement’s interest in providing healthy alternative pursuits along with that of drinking. To this end a Bowling Club and Pavilion (pictured) was built to the rear of the pub in 1935; it was restored in 2006. Both pub and pavilion are Grade II listed.
There will be a walking tour of about an hour and half, which will take in a 1930s shopping parade, the interwar housing by H Dare and Sons, 1930s alms houses and a 1950s vicarage, returning to the pub. There we will have a social drink and chat.
Please let them know you are attending this very interesting tour. We definitely will be. Thank you
