The Old Print Works is delighted to be hosting the formal launch of our wonderful new cycling facilities on Saturday July 8th from 2.00pm. All are welcome to attend. These great new facilities include cycle parking in front of our building, outside Ort Café and GAP Arts, with additional parking in the courtyard of The Old Print Works. In addition, we have a repair station, which includes a a cycle pump and bike work stand with a range of tools, so useful if you would benefit from the bike being off the floor for the repair, or if you dont have all the tools yourself.   We have also had new super-bright lighting installed in the courtyard for your safety and your bike’s security.

A huge thank you to Birmingham City Council (Birmingham Cycle Revolution) for their grant that supported these works. The Old Print Works is run by a charity and these facilities are helping us and those who come to The Old Print Works to be much more sustainable.


1.00pm -  45 minutes of free yoga in the courtyard (weather permitting - inside if not) from Moseley Yoga. Book  here.

2.00pm – The facilities will be opened by Councillor Tony Kennedy at 2pm with a short speech.

2.30pm – ‘Stand and Deliver’.  John Newson from Balsall Heath is our Planet (BHIOP) will then lead a guided cycle ride around Balsall Heath. This will take a maximum of an hour and will look at your ideas for how cycle facilities could be improved in Balsall Heath. This will be on-road and is suitable for confident cyclist supervision. Bring your own bikes! Views will be fed back to the Council.

3.30pm – We will return to The Old Print Works where you will be able to

  • Visit Ort Gallery/The Gap. This will be the last chance to see the great members exhibition in Ort Gallery and why not pop in to The Gap and see a photographic exhibition entitled 'My Place..?' by a young refugee documenting his experiences of living in Birmingham.
  • Take a look at the Moseley Yoga studio and their range of classes.
  • Come and celebrate historic Myrtle Cottage’s new gardens, wonderfully created by Jeremy, including the Bee Garden at the front with the support of BHIOP. Refreshments and poetry are planned.
