See Pickle Illustration's 'Workers Of The Roundhouse' Window animation

Every day between 7:30pm - 10:30pm
The Roundhouse, 1 Sheepcote Street, B16 8AE

You may remember receiving an art print by Pickle Illustration if you bought Brumbox 014 last year. Well, they've remained very busy since then and have recently been commissioned for a very special animation display at The Roundhouse.

Workers of the Roundhouse is a playful look at some of the professions who were based there in the past; people responsible for keeping the ‘The City of 1000 Trades’ ticking over!

It's free to view from the towpath, with visuals also being shown in the museum. We love Pickle’s illustration style, and to see it brought to life by animator Rosa Kennedy is magical!

Picture This 

Birmingham International Airport Maglev Link

BHX Airport with its Maglev (now known as Air-Rail) Link, connecting the airport to Birmingham International Train Station and the NEC. This version ran from 1984 - 1995 and used magnetic force to levitate the carriages; very clever! That is, until it had to shut down due to repeating obsolescence problems making it too unreliable to run! 🤦‍♂️
