History
A committee was formed to obtain sponsorship support and to administer biennial and other exhibitions at different locations throughout Birmingham and the Midlands. After the RBSA, venues included The Bond Gallery and the National Exhibition Centre, with interim shows at galleries in Malvern, Broadway in the Cotswolds, Nottingham (Patchings), Bewdley and Shrewsbury.

In 1997, the now redesignated Birmingham Pastel Society was invited by Professor Arthur Hughes of the U.C.E., to hold its ninth Biennial Exhibition in the Magnificently restored Neo-Gothic Department of Art building in Margaret Street, Birmingham. The Society held four biennial exhibitions at that venue.

The Society was, once again, renamed in 2006, becoming The Birmingham & Midland Pastel Society to reflect its wider membership. The Society has since then held its biennial exhibitions in their original location at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists at 4 Brook Street, St. Paul's. The Birmingham & Midland Pastel Society very much appreciates and thanks the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists for allowing us to hold our exhibitions in their excellent gallery.

There are no members of the Society, only exhibitors. The Society is run by a nine person Committee that includes a President, Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and five other people. Vacancies are filled from within the Exhibitors through invitation by the committee.
