Consisting of three spaces, the gallery space enjoys natural light that illuminates the white walls and further juxtaposes the steel girders and exposed brick.

FROM PAWN SHOP
From our research, we found that our building is steeped in history. The earliest records of The Lambourne dates back to 1848 where a pawnbroker run by a Miss Ann Webb opened its doors. 2 years later in 1850, Mackey Charles opened up his brass foundry in what is now our atrium gallery which sold Hosiers, Jewellery & Sundries.
TO UNDERGROUND NIGHTCLUB
Moving to the 20th century, where the building held a variety of different occupations as the Jewellery Quarter changed and evolved as an area. There was a move from manufacturing (to help the war effort in the 40's), to it being used as a live music venue and underground nightclub in the 90's (where the WHOLE building was painted black!)
TO UNIQUE EVENTS SPACE
Today, where Iron House's mission is to enable and empower our community to utilise this unique environment. We want to play our part in the community so that when the occupants n 100 years time look back on the Lambourne's like we did, they're as proud of it as we are today.
Don't take our word for it...
Ironhouse is such a great venue because it is so versatile! Big open spaces, and plenty of room for exhibitions etc, so you have the freedom to really create the space you need to suit your event. I held my recent Birmingham Creatives Social here and it was perfect, the bar is a really good size for the venue too, and the staff/owners were extremely helpful throughout planning stages and during the event itself. Highly recommended!
“The Iron House is the perfect venue for a birthday party that you want to make your own stamp on! Staff will go above and beyond to help and the communication has been great. Highly recommended”
“I highly recommend Iron House as an excellent event space in Birmingham. The space is very versatile and the team are super helpful. Jack was tremendously accommodating for the needs of our event and ensured that the physical alterations to the venue I requested were in place with very short notice. Our clients were absolutely delighted with our event and they expressed how impressed they were with the venue, so huge credit and thanks goes to Iron House. We will be back!”
“Iron House is an amazing venue. Not only the space but also Ross, Jack and Darren who run this very attractive new gallery. I am very proud that my students and I had the honour to be the ones who held the very first Iron House exhibition. Iron House is offering a professional and contemporary gallery space suitable in style and location to add to the ever growing art and culture scene of Birmingham and the Midlands. Space and structure allow art work to sit in an appropriately industrial and yet uplifting minimalistic setting. Ross, Jack, Darren and their team were ever helpful and flexible in accommodating our needs throughout the hanging, private view, opening period up to the take down. It was a blast!”
We've been fortunate at Iron House to have worked with a number of fantastic organisations and charities, both locally and nationally. We are passionate about community and have taken great proud in being the platform to bring people together, offline.
