"If you don't already know it, the Old Joint Stock is an absolute jewel box of a theatre. Perched on the top floor of a grand nineteenth century building that was once a private bank, right opposite the front door of Birmingham's St Philip's Cathedral, it's the jewel in the crown of a brilliant and vibrant pub conversion. For those of us who like their theatre experiences up close and personal it is one of the midlands' most perfect venues..." The Lichfield Blog
