- Andy Munro
15th April 2022
This book charts the changes in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter over the last twenty years, and is the first work to look beyond the area’s unique early history and the jewellery trade itself. Today the quarter is a vibrant urban village, and here former Jewellery Quarter regeneration director Andy Munro tells the story of its transformation.
The regeneration of the area sought to achieve the difficult act of revitalising the area while protecting its unique jewellery trade and heritage. This book offers a fascinating insight into the successes and failures of the initiative and draws on interviews with the many interesting characters who were players in this regeneration game.
