The Hive JQ

The Hive is a community hub for Birmingham in an historic building, with an award-winning organic café and bakery, craft workshops, exhibitions and event spaces.

The JQ Heritage Squad, managed by the Townscape Heritage team, is a way to strengthen connections between cultural organisations and charities in the Jewellery Quarter to help them achieve more.

There are lots of different ways to get involved as a volunteer on a flexible and ad hoc basis to support local cultural organisations and charities. You can support events, carry out research and help to document, preserve and care for the heritage of the area.

As a member of the JQ Heritage Squad, in exchange for a little of your time you can:

  • Boost your CV, gain access to training and new experiences at different heritage attractions
  • Have fun, learn new things, meet people and enjoy social opportunities
  • Share your skills and support the work of local charities to help them achieve more
  • Be part of a team and wider network of volunteers; contributing to the cultural life of the area
