For Birmingham Heritage week we will be holding an exhibition at the Wholesale Memory Hub (below), on site at the Smithfield precinct. This free exhibition will be open each day from 12-5pm, and consists of exhibits about the 900 year history of markets on the site, contemporary photographs and interviews with traders, workers and customers and the relatively recent history of the Sunday carboot sale. We’ve been working as artists on the site since 2001 and have gathered a unique archive of photographs, artefacts and interviews with some of the fascinating characters that inhabit Smithfield.

As well as the free exhibition, we will be hosting guided tours of the Sunday Market on the 10th and 17th September at 9.30 and 11 am. To book your free place, or to find out more, email – info@frictionarts.com
