The history of IET Birmingham: Austin Court
Originally called the Kingston Buildings, IET Birmingham: Austin Court was renamed in honour of Herbert Austin, later Lord Austin of Longbridge, the pioneering Midlands car manufacturer.
Situated near the main junction of Birmingham’s canal system, discover how architect Roger Beale’s design regeneration in 1997 transformed the venue from an industrial site to a beautifully blended mix of contemporary and traditional event spaces.
