Moseley Road Baths invites you ‘Back to Ours’. The Gala Pool has been designed by Friction Arts to create a gentle space with and for local residents where visitors can relax, engage and converse. Playful installations, made by our contributors, are inside and outside the building invite us to examine and celebrate our communal and individual heritage, as well as the rich, complex history of the Baths and of Balsall Heath, and to strengthen the future that we will create together.
This is made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Through the three months of Balsall Heath’s Living Room local architects CODA Workshop will be resident in the space, inviting us to share memories of our most treasured pieces of furniture, exploring what and who makes these items so special to us and creating models and designs of furniture in response to our memories.

Mini Athletics 14-14:30 (4-7 year olds) 14.30-15pm (1-3 year olds)
As part of Balsall Heath’s Living Room Mini Athletics South Birmingham are here!
At Mini Athletics we take what children love to do the most (running super fast, jumping high and throwing far) and mix it with imaginative themes, learning to follow instructions, making friends and developing gross motor skills. It’s the magical combination of imaginative play sports and burning energy!
