The Academy is also a great conferencing or event venue, with a diverse range of private and public events taking place throughout the year. Discover our unique, hidden spaces and let our events team help you deliver an exceptional experience for your delegates.

If you're seeking a contemporary event space, we can recommend the Foyer. It has fantastic lighting and acoustics and is perfect for staff celebrations, music and karaoke. It can also be dressed and furnished for spacious, seated concerts, exhibitions and presentations.

If you're seeking a unique conference venue, we have a number of rooms available for hire, as well as break-out spaces that can be transformed into champagne bars or VIP areas. And our Boulton Gallery, which houses some of the Birmingham Assay Office's silver collection, is the ideal space for Board meetings or intimate fine dining. 

Call the Academy team on 0121 794 1320 or email to arrange for a viewing or to discuss your requirements.  Or follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to keep up-to-date with our news, views and events.
