Bournville Heritage Open Day
Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Prince Lazar, 92 Griffins Brook Lane, Bournville B30 1QG
We welcome you to the only purpose built Serbian Orthodox Church in the UK. Richly decorated with floor to ceiling al-secco frescos, the church is considered a ‘hidden gem’ in Birmingham. The church will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in October. Visit our website for more info.
We are extremely delighted to welcome to St Lazar’s Hall on this day, an exhibition of Serbian medieval fresco copies from the monasteries of Kosovo and Metohija. This unique occasion marks the first time such art has been displayed in the UK since the Yugoslav Medieval Fresco exhibition of 1953 at the Tate. Refreshments, homemade cakes and burgers will be available to purchase. This is a great chance to meet a friendly Serbian community who have been thriving in Birmingham since the 1950s.
No booking required.
