Black Saturday - Crossroads of Sabbath

Crossroads of Sabbath tours allow visitors to engage with Birmingham and its history through the Black Sabbath story.


Extensive research into the economic and social factors that shaped the young men who went on to form Black Sabbath is presented live, on the streets where those stories were played out.

The first batch of walking tour dates for 2016 will be on the third Saturday in the month and are now detailed on the Crossroads of Sabbath website.

Further announcements will be made in the new year concerning charity fundraising events, public arts projects and a new range of walking tours.





Tickets can be booked via the Crossroads Of Sabbath website
