During this period of uncertainty and changing coronavirus restrictions, unfortunately our meeting room will remain closed for the time being.
If you are part of a voluntary group that is interested in holding online meetings during this time, but are not sure how to get started, feel free to contact our coordinator for some advice: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Resource Centre is based downstairs at the Hub and is available to book for meetings.
What facilities are available? The space is ideal for small-group meetings of up to 12 people. A table & chairs are provided, and tea & coffee making is available to bring down from the Hub upstairs. The Hub is conveniently located in Birmingham city centre, with easy access by rail, bus and tram. A bike rail is available, and limited parking for visitors with mobility needs can be organised on request. Please note that the meeting room is down a single flight of stairs, unfortunately there is currently no lift access.
When can the room be booked? The room is normally available 11am-5pm Tue-Thu (except for 1 to 1:30pm on Tuesdays due to Silence in the City). If you would like to meet outside of this time, we may have some flexibility: so please get in touch to find out if it is feasible for us to accommodate you.
Who can book? The room is available to non-party-political groups and organisations that are working under the broad umbrella of ‘peace & justice’ (see the themes that Peace Hub has worked on to get an idea of the scope of topics under this umbrella.) Groups could be working on campaigning, awareness raising or practical action. Groups do not need to be Quaker-related, but we do ask that while using our premises you act in sympathy with the Quaker testimonies on peace, equality, simplicity & truth.
What is the cost? The room is booked on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis. Groups and organisations vary widely in the amount of resources they have available – from professional NGOs to volunteer groups – so please consider a donation that reflects the amount you would normally budget for a city centre meeting.
How is the room booked? To book, please email email@example.com or call 0121 238 2869 stating: Your name & contact details A brief description of your group (incl. a website if you have one) What date & time you would like to book the room We will respond as quickly as possible to confirm whether we can accommodate your request.
