Discover Access to Arts, Heritage and Culture (ATHAC) at their Grosvenor Studios base in Birchfield. Set up in 2004 to break down the barriers facing disabled children and families to participation in and enjoyment of cultural and arts activities, ATHAC is a social enterprise dedicated to the enrichment of the lives of disabled children, young people and their families. The group provides a range of services including: trips, monthly and weekly sessions, training workshops for parents, health and wellbeing sessions, family outreach, short breaks and advice and information alongside arts and cultural activities.

Our venue – Grosvenor Studios – is a cultural treasure in its own right; Birmingham’s oldest recording studio and the second oldest recording studio still operational in the UK; after Abbey Road in London, the studios have hosted many well-known TV and film productions as well as large numbers of bands throughout the years. The Move, Jeff Lynne, The Moody Blues and Spencer Davis all used Grosvenor. John Bonham (of Led Zeppelin) and Slade’s Noddy Holder made their recording debuts at the studios.
This ‘Learn for Real’ event gives participants the inside track on ATHAC’s work and 15 years of outstanding experience; the chance to learn about inclusion in arts and heritage and to share their own reflections on it.
