Celebrating Gun Manufacturing in Birmingham

A celebration of gun manufacturing in Birmingham. The gunmaking industry thrived in Birmingham from the seventeenth century and our City contributed hugely to the economic prosperity and precision manufacturing of gun making heritage. We will have a display illustrating how Birmingham was involved, both nationally and internationally, in this trade. You will be able to discover how Birmingham provided many guns for English Civil War, the wars against France as well as the two Great Wars. The display will be based in Two Towers Brewery which is located in the heart of the Gun Quarter, just behind the Gunmakers Arms on Bath St.
