Medicine Bakery & Gallery

In 2017, the search to once again create unique and meaningful experiences for the region’s diverse communities was reignited with the discovery of a vacant 2,200 sq ft first floor Victorian space on Birmingham’s prominent New Street, previously home to the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists.

This space represented an opportunity to restore a beautiful building to its former glory, yet with a new purpose. Reintroducing art and culture back into the product mix, the new Birmingham home of Medicine will continue the brand’s unique culinary offering whilst programming regular events, talks and exhibitions to bring people together and create a conversation for the city.

Please note, this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
