Join the Friends

The aim of the Friends is to involve the public and to support swimming at the Baths by holding events and activities such as Open Days, Heritage Tours of the Baths and Arts events.


Attend our open meetings and get involved!

Our meetings are open to everyone.  We generally meet at the Baths on the first Thursday every two months at 6.30pm, but please phone ahead to check.

We welcome new people and new ideas.  If there is something you’re wanting to get stuck into then please do shout up.  We run stalls from time to time at local Farmers Markets and other community events, so if you want to help with these then that would be great.

Shout out your support!

Whilst there is commitment from Birmingham City Council and a broad coalition of heritage organisations to the future of community swimming at Moseley Road Baths, we do want to continue to raise awareness of the need for adequate investment in our pool.

Contacting local media, making some noise on Social Media and contacting local elected representitives are all useful ways of highlighting the value of swimming at Moseley Road Baths.  You may wish to highlight:

  • The health benefits of swimming  – it is cheap, accessible and safe
  • Current swimming demand not being met – particularly for schools
  • Poor health statistics within our local community
  • Low numbers of school pupils able to swim the required 25m by the end of Primary School
  • The architectural merit of the building
  • The need for investment in Balsall Heath – and the impact an empty property would have on the area.
