New Street Remembered

December 2010 marked 75 years since King Edward's left the Sir Charles Barry Building on New Street. To celebrate the occasion, the School ran an exhibition of archive material related to the building throughout February and March 2011. The exhibition was held in the School's Chapel, which was originally the upper corridor of the Barry Building.


As part of the exhibition there was a screening of a 25 minute film called New Street Remembered, which features 3D images of the Barry building and the memories of four Old Edwardians who were taught there.

You can also view a short film featuring Dr David Blissett, architect and author of forthcoming biography of Sir Charles Barry.


The opening launch of the exhibition took place on Friday, 21 January 2011. Guests included the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Birmingham and four Old Edwardians who featured in the film. For more information about the evening and to see photos, please click here.
