The space, plenty of room, flexibility in how you use it and has lots more character than other venues. The service was perfect, well organised, flexible and so welcoming.

Booked Entire Venue at The Birmingham Contemporary Art Gallery
A massive Thank you to Sarah and Albert for sharing this beautiful space for Chris and I to celebrate the launch of our medical book - Ultrasound for the Generalist. The space is unique, bright and all my guests commented how beautiful it was. Everyone had a lovely memorable time- we were able to give a presentation and facilities enabled promotion of the book whilst admiring the beautiful art pieces. We had a bar and dedicated catering. Sarah and Albert are amazing and I thank them so much for making this evening one we will never forget. Thank you!!
