A collection of memories from past industrial workers, the narratives of Factory Folk are stories collected from real people throughout the north of England, giving an insight into the lives of past factory workers and their families. Blending their words with live music and performance, the show’s heart-warming tales will take you on a journey through the hardship of Twentieth Century Factory Life.
Great and intriguing sounds emanating from the building today as rehearsals crank up for different musical experiments from Birmingham Conservatoire. The whole week has a varied program of events. The best way to work out what is happening is visit the event’s website.
We are pleased to announce two stand-out events visiting @ A E Harris in a single week.
On 22nd April we are flattered that Angela Clerkin and Improbable have chosen @ A E Harris as the Birmingham stop off for national tour of The Bear. The show looks like a lot of fun and we’d be really pleased if there were a good crowd to welcome this prestigious company to our venue.
Then, with a day to recover, we welcome long time Stan’s Cafe collaborator Bernadette Russell to the venue with her own company White Rabbit and her own show 366 Days of Kindness. This is a work-in-progress preview of the piece, which has close connections with Birmingham as it was born out of the riots two years ago.
For Angela’s show you need to buy tickets from here. For Bernadette’s you have to be invited, but that’s easily done if you follow the links.
Four and a half years into @ A E Harris and Riddlewood has to count in the top three most spectacular installations to have gone into the space. It’s made by students from the Birmingham School of Acting. It looks amazing, it’s free to attend but you’re advised to book slots but do go, it’s on until Saturday night in hourly slots details..

Theatre Fever started in the West Midlands district today. Double Plus Good. Four productions @ A E Harris over these two weeks which contribute to this celebration of West Midlands Theatre. Tonight Inferno Kid, next week 1984, then Palimpsest City and finally The Furies. Surely that’s enough of a range for there to be something you fancy. Come and catch the Fever.
The Inferno Kid was once professional wrestling’s brightest star – a risk-taking daredevil both inside the ring and out. Today he is disabled, destitute and all but forgotten by the wrestling world. He is only 36. Now the living room of his wife’s council flat provides a fitting venue for one final showdown – this time, with the demons of his past. But with his mind and his marriage on the line is this a match The Inferno Kid can win?
We’re delighted to welcome Alex Brockie back to @ A E Harris on 9th March with this great show. We feel a special connection with it as a section was tried out in the venue as part of a Pilot Night a couple of years ago.
We are delighted to welcome long time friend of @ A E Harris Pete Ashton to the venue with his colleague Matt Murtagh to run a photography workshop focusing on long exposure techniques on 19th March 7pm – 9pm.
Proof there is always something new and interesting happening @ A E Harris.
