The Midlands Enlightenment is a new monthly meetup for RSA Fellows at 1000 Trades in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

In a welcoming, informal setting, each meetup will hear from someone who, one way or another, is undertaking pioneering work – helping to secure a new Enlightenment here in the Midlands.   

The first meetup will be at 6pm on Tuesday 7 November when we’ll hear from the people behind Toast Ale. They are using brewing to reduce bread waste in the UK. Sustainable and fun – very enlightened.   

Come along to meet other Fellows and hear more from a ground-breaking business.

If you have any questions, or to let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you have, please email the RSA team: [email protected]

This event is free; however, please let us know you’re coming by registering your place using the 'Book Now' button above.

Did you know 44% of bread is wasted in the UK? Toast Ale has launched a pint-sized fight to prove that the alternative to food waste is delicious. They brew delicious craft beer with surplus fresh bread that would otherwise be wasted and gives all profits to charity to fight food waste.
