The Eagle and Tun public house was a much-loved local venue, offering live music, which sadly closed in 2008.
Once home to a thriving music scene, the band UB40 filmed their iconic video for ‘Red Red Wine’ at the pub in the 1980s. It also featured on the cover of their album ‘The Best of UB40’.
The Victorian building has stood for over 100 years, but now sits disused after its closure. As a Grade B locally listed building, conservation should be considered during potential developments.
The Eagle and Tun has been incorporated into plans for the Curzon Street Gateway to the Birmingham HS2 network. The building will be modified to fit the development.
