An update from our friends, Birmingham People’s History Archive:

BPHA has a Historic England grant for an exciting project about local industries. Birmingham’s changed so much in recent times, but we must remember, and keep for future generations, the memories of people and places who have contributed so much to our great city.

We want to interview retired industrial workers. University of Birmingham students will be trained to carry out interviews by the Oral History Society. These will take place in community settings during December 2022 – early 2023. Information from the interviews will be used for school artwork, teaching resources, and community activities, exhibitions and other events led by BPHA. 

We’d love to hear your stories! If you’d like to be interviewed, please email   We can also arrange a phone call with anyone who’d like to talk about the project or ask more questions first. 

Thank you,
