Stuffed full of mince pies and still dozy from the mulled wine? Time to get back into action and put your serous Social Media cap on for 2010. We took a break in December, and instead held a Social Media Surgery Social(phew!) for all those who had attended or helped at Birmingham surgeries in the year. Now we’re back to work full of ideas for how we can use the web to aid what we do. So schedule in the January surgery to your diaries now.
The next CENTRAL Birmingham Social Media Surgery will take place on Wednesday 20 January from 5.30-7pm at our new venue – thestudio.
We moved venues from Fazeley Studios in Digbeth (above) to thestudio on Cannon Street because we found during the winter months people were reluctant to make the dark evening walk to Fazeley street. Thestudio is bang in the middle of the city centre (see directions below) and couldn’t be easier to get to.

The Birmingham Social Media Surgeries have taken place within the walls of a number of venues since their conception in September 2008. We’ve previously set up camp at BVSC Birmingham Centre for Voluntary Action, and have run the central surgeries from our offices at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth.
But we’ve noticed during the winter months some people have been reluctant to make the dark evening walk to Fazeley street. So we’ve decided to move to a venue a little bit closer to the city centre.
The December Social Media Surgery Social was at our new venue – the studio. The lovely people at the studio are letting us take over their bar area free of charge allowing us to carry on our voluntary service (so long as people buy a beverage from the bar). It’s a bright space with excellent WiFi and a friendly atmosphere, and located right in the centre of Birmingham – it couldn’t be easier to get too (see directions below).
While we are excited about holding our Central Birmingham Social Media Surgeries in the city centre, we also want to say a HUGE thank you to all the lovely people at Fazeley who stayed behind after work to make sure we could run a surgery in the reception area, providing us with tea and coffee and always there to help.
