There will be so many ways for children and adults to participate and have fun at the Coffin Works!
At Newman Brothers we will have a public programme of events and activities as well as our factory tour experiences and school sessions.
The Gallery will provide artists with flexible space for temporary exhibitions and installations and our fabulous Courtyard will be available to host and to hire for performances and events.
You can also get involved at the Coffin Works as a volunteer. Click here to find out how!
Be a part of it now! Enter our art competition. Details below.
Winning entries will be printed on the external factory site boards in Fleet Street from January 2014 until the factory attraction re-opens in summer 2014 (and in gallery space inside upon opening).
Everyone is welcome to enter. There are three age categories;
The entries will be judged by a panel on their creativity and how they capture the history and/or architecture and ‘spirit’ of Newman Brothers. Entries will be accepted in any medium provided that they can be digitally scanned for reproduction on the panels.
Let the image gallery, quotes from interviews with former workers and background history contained in these webpages inspire you!
Entries should be scanned or photographed and sent electronically to suzannecarterBCT@gmail.com or posted to:
Birmingham Conservation Trust

If you are one of the 9 winning entries selected, we may ask for the original to digitally reproduce to a high quality.
Please provide a caption or title for your work as well as your contact details, age category, and if you would like to, a few words on what has inspired you.
Entries must be received by Sunday 8 December 2013.
