Launch bid for Highbury Hall

Campaign targets £8million to restore historic Highbury Hall 

A special event launched an £8million fund-raising campaign to breathe new life into historic Highbury Hall and bring the building and grounds back to their former glory. The bold plans will see the Grade II listed Victorian Gothic mansion and 30 acres of grounds in Moseley, once home of the Chamberlain family, not only restored but revamped with a coffee shop and museum. The event was attended by Birmingham council leader Cllr Ian Ward and Chamberlain Highbury Trust patron Tristram Hunt.
