Last Sunday I joined the Instagramers of Birmingham (IGers Birmingham) and Hidden Spaces to explore the amazing Methodist Central Hall.
I wanted to go and have a look around the Methodist Central Hall because I'd only ever seen it in it's 'club state'. To see what I mean by that please take a look at the photos I recently took at Our House Rave which was held in the Methodist Central Hall. I thought seeing it by day would be a such a juxtaposition. And it was. Especially seeing all the features that you don't get to see when it's filled with 3,000 people and the only lighting is lasers and light cannons.
Once we'd got through the housekeeping bit we were allowed to have a mooch around freely, it was really dark in places and I resisted the temptation to use flash except for in areas were there literally wasn't any light at all.
"The three storey Grade II* listed Methodist Central Hall, built by Ewan Harper & James A. Harper at the turn of the century, is an instantly recognisable part of Birmingham’s city centre skyline.
It sits opposite the Victoria Law Courts at the northern end of Corporation Street and was described by Alexandra Wedgwood in 1968 as ‘the local men’s answer to the Law Courts’ . This event is part of Hidden Spaces' June 2016 programme called Reimaged. For more info on the project go to www.hidden-spaces.co.uk."
Anyway thanks for looking
