Did you know?

The lecture theatre is named after the Kingston Wharf on which the original building was constructed in 1806.

During WW2, the wharf was requisitioned by the Government for the storage of gas masks, sandbags, and other items for the defence of the city.

This area of the canal, therefore, played a significant role in Birmingham’s history and is recognised through the Kingston Lecture Theatre.
