Moseley Road Baths Open Day gives the public a chance to learn about the history of this threatened Grade II* listed building, with access to normally closed areas such as the gala pool, private washing bath departments, laundry room and cold-water storage tank, as well as the boiler and filtration rooms. A highlight of the day comes at 2pm with a re-enactment of the opening ceremony following which Edwardian-period musical entertainment will be provided in the tea room and birthday cake partaken. Later, at 3pm, members of the general public who so wish may undertake a guided tour of the building. For those unable to attend the re-enactment, additional guided tours will take place at 11pm, noon and 1pm and pre-booking is advised. Entrance to Moseley Road Baths Open Day is free, and refreshments will be available in return for a small donation to the Friends of Moseley Road Baths. Additionally, Pool of Memories, the Friends’ book on the history of the baths, will be on sale for £10.
