Home Of Metal Exhibition To Open In Birmingham
The Home Of Metal exhibition is about to open at the Birmingham Museum And Art Gallery.
Running from June 18 to September 25, it celebrates over 40 years of metal history in Birmingham and the Black Country. There are various exhibitions and cultural programmes exploring the social context and heritage of the music. Of course, the likes of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Napalm Death are all featured, with many personal items on display.
In addition there are special events, including DIY guitar and fanzine making workshops, a special ‘bring your own metal memorabilia’ day, and Bat Out Of Hell, which is a series of bat walks in Haden Hill Park!
These will be followed by a Home Of Metal weekend in September, which has a metal conference, film programme and series of concerts.
There are also associated exhibitions in various other locations in the Midlands.
Tickets are on sale now.
