A new definitive gold guide to Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter will be available in time for the Olympics from 1st August at Information Centres, Birmingham Central Library, Galleries, Museums, and selected Chiltern Railway Stations. Containing lots of interesting facts about the Quarter, it also includes information on attractions, shopping and the area’s restaurants and bars.
Anna Gibson, publisher of the free guide said. “The last Guide proved immensely popular and stocks quickly ran out. This latest gold Guide is a response to the demand from Tourism Information Centres and other attractions. The Quarter is such a unique part of the City that we feel it is important to have a definitive and up to date Guide in time for the many visitors to the Olympics. Whilst the internet is an increasingly useful tool, many people still prefer a real Guide that they can flick through.”
Greg Fattorini, Managing Director of Thomas Fattorini Ltd said, “It is great that this new free Guide showcases such a unique part of Birmingham and is ready in time for visitors to the Olympics. It is particularly fitting because the badges made for the Olympic Torches were also made here in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.”
Ian Taylor, Commercial Director, Marketing Birmingham said, “The Jewellery Quarter is both a unique and integral part of Birmingham’s exciting visitor offer. With so many new visitors to the UK and the City in this Olympic Year this new Guide will be invaluable.”This comprehensive Guide is free and is not only an excellent reference book on the Quarter’s history but includes some essential tips on shopping for jewellery.
