Our centenary celebrations continue into 2019, with the unveiling of a Blue Plaque to Mary Cottrell, a visit to The Old Rep and now a Blue Plaque finder map on the website. Browse the map to see all our Blue Plaques and History Plates around the city, and learn a little about each recipient.

Thanks to Jamie Justham for all the plaque photos, and a huge thank you to Penny Colbourne, our Blue Plaque Co-ordinator, for all her hard work populating the map. In addition to adding new plaques as we install them, Penny will gradually be adding more information about the recipients, such as where they are buried. She also plans to make it an even more comprehensive record of the city’s rich history by including plaques erected by other organisations, such as English Heritage, the City Council, the University of Birmingham and the Birmingham Conservation Trust.
