West Midlands Police

I had the amazing privilege of being invited to make a film about the public opening of Steelhouse Lane lockup. Steelhouse Lane is a prison facility that neighbours the historic law courts in central Birmingham. The facility has recently become redundant to West Midlands Police, they are currently trying to find a way to use the building to celebrate their history and heritgage. Recently, they partnered with Hidden Spaces Birmingham for a unique run of events that allowed the public to enter this incredible facility. This film (and the event is covers) are part of a larger movement by West Midlands Police to engage the public with their fascinating and diverse history.
