The building at Stirchley Baths has recently been renovated, and is lovely to browse around and look at the beauty the new/old Stirchley Baths is/has become.
It has taken many months to convert the old baths into the new community centre. They’ve managed to pair modern facilities with the heritage of the building to preserve memories but in a space that enables them and you to also create new ones.
These baths are a grade ii listed building. Open initially in 1911 (Edwardian) the site has been derelict for three decades and cost £4 million to restore.
There are regular clubs, activities and rooms to hire (see website for details) with plans to develop a community cinema over the next few months.
On the 20th February Stirchley Baths will be the site for the first Stirchley Vegan Fair.
And ChangeKitchen will be selling its tasty ware in the cafe and the hall alongside tasty other vegan food.
