OUR VENUE | in the heart of Birmingham's city centre!

The exhibition will be hosted at Retort House, a unique Grade II and Grade II* listed building, dating from 1822, measuring an epic 18,922 sq ft. One of Retort House’s main features is the Georgian cast iron trussed roof structure, an elaborate and unique tracery set against the backdrop of original brickwork elevations. The building is unique and situated in the heart of Birmingham's city centre. This is the first time it has been used for an arts event. Both The River Project and Retort House underline the importance of heritage, culture and participation in the region.
