Highbury Heritage Trust: An invitation to become the Chair or a trustee and shape the future of an iconic historic house and garden – Highbury
In 1932 Highbury Estate – Highbury hall and its gardens, the Birmingham home of Joseph Chamberlain – was given in trust to the City of Birmingham. Since then it has been operated by Birmingham City Council as sole trustee. It has been used for many purposes, most recently as a banqueting and wedding venue run by the City Council’s catering arm. Following a detailed options appraisal by Birmingham Conservation Trust, Birmingham City Council wishes to facilitate a fresh start for Highbury. A new independent trust, the Highbury Heritage Trust, will be established and granted the estate’s assets on at least a 25-year lease. The new trust will develop and implement a vision for Highbury. For anyone passionate about Birmingham’s heritage this is an extraordinary opportunity to come in at the beginning of a transformational venture and shape the future of Highbury for a generation.
