Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the RBSA in Birmingham

STOP PRESS: Christmas shoppers take note – our Members and Associates Exhibition is open on Christmas Eve for last minute gifts.

It’s been a busy and fruitful year at the RBSA, and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us in 2018.

You can visit us right up until Christmas Eve to explore three floors of art for last minute gifts away from the crowds. Our tranquil galleries are so much more pleasant to shop in than most parts of town at this time of year!

Our opening times over the festive season are below:
