Get creative with five different colouring sheets and four pop-up cards showing some of our favourite Jewellery Quarter buildings and locations! All resources are downloadable, or can be sent out as a pack.
Explore the hidden histories of the Jewellery Quarter with two fantastic pavement trails. The Charm Bracelet Trail starts at the bottom of Newhall Hill (look out for the heart shaped charm!) and takes you on a visual journey around the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. The Findings Trail celebrates the varied achievements and stories of JQ residents and workers, starting on Newhall Street.
