The Midlands Arts Centre has modern, accessible facilities for our Local and Family History Fair with views across Cannon Hill Park for visitors and exhibitors to enjoy. While you are at the Fair you can pop into the Bridges Café Bar or the Arena Bar to grab a drink and a bite to eat or just relax with a coffee for a while. There is free wi-fi throughout the building for exhibitors to use for their displays, if needed, or for just checking your emails.
There will be 35+ tables in the main exhibition theatre, laid out for easy access where you can chat to exhibitors about the work that they do and the help that they can offer.
