Revealing the Reservoir
Audio Tour

Revealing the Reservoir is an audio tour of Edgbaston Reservoir, presented and narrated by people who love it.

Working with Friends of Edgbaston Reservoir and the Dreaming Tower Ballroom project, we’ve created an introduction to this amazing local asset.

This tour is available on a Pay-As-You-Feel basis. 

There’s no charge, but you can make a voluntary donation via the app or on our website if you’re able.

By making a donation, you’re directly helping to support the future of the Roundhouse, enabling our work with the local community.


Designed for a strolling pace, the tour offers an introduction to the reservoir’s wealth of history, wildlife, green space, and of course, epic views.

The tour also features a dedicated section on the iconic Tower Ballroom, read by actor, Janeel Brown, and a spoken word piece written and performed by Simone Wordsmith.

We guarantee you’ll get some new perspectives on The Rezza!
