Coronavirus Statement

Last updated: March 24th 2020

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night (March 23), the Gardens are now closed until further notice.

What does it mean for your membership?

Membership will be extended for the period of time the Gardens is closed. We value your support and thank you for your understanding.

The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is a charity, which means that closing the gates will have a significant impact. Our income relies on donations, entry fees and memberships. If you would like to continue supporting us, you can find out how to here – every donation is gratefully received. Taking A Stand, our appeal to raise funds to restore our Victorian bandstand, is also ongoing.

We will continue to monitor the guidelines and advice from the Government and Public Health England and will update you accordingly.

In the meantime, we hope you stay safe. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back.
