About Aston Hall
Aston Hall is a magnificent seventeenth century red-brick mansion situated in a picturesque public park on the north side of Birmingham. Built between 1618 and 1635 for Sir Thomas Holte and home to James Watt Junior from 1817-1848, Aston Hall is steeped in history. Now a grade I listed building, the hall is restored to its former Jacobean splendor and is hugely popular with visitors of all ages.
ASTONish is a programme of cultural leadership and creative entrepreneurship training and development, aimed at emergent and established artists, performers, musicians and creative entrepreneurs in Aston and Newtown who have the ambition and potential to transform both themselves and the sector.
