Heritage Day and Open Studios at the former TASCOS Co-op Bakery
The Ten Acres and Stirchley Co-operative Society was once the largest retail business in South Birmingham, with more than 200 shops and offering a range of services from a plant nursery, laundry and butchery departments, to dairy, coal and bakery deliveries.
Today, the former TASCOS bakery building on Maryvale Road is the home of South Birmingham Works – a shared studio space for artists, film-makers and other creative people.
This “Open Studios” style event will include a display of historic photographs, a chance to see how the former bakery is being used today and an opportunity to share your co-operative stories with members of the Birmingham Co-op History Group.
South Birmingham Works is 2 minutes walk from Bournville Railway Station and Pershore Road bus stops.
Organised by Birmingham Co-operative History Group & South Birmingham Works
