Perry Barr Stadium is a stadium and a Greyhound Board of Great Britain regulated greyhound racing track on Aldridge Road in Perry Barr, Birmingham, England. The track is operated by the Greyhound Racing Association, which is a subsidiary of the National Asset Management Agency, who also own the stadium. Racing takes place every Friday and Saturday evening.Opened in 1929, it was built for Birchfield Harriers, who left in 1977. It is now used for greyhound racing and speedway. It is not to be confused with the Birchfield Ladbroke Stadium that is also known as the old Perry Barr Stadium which closed in 1984.LocationThe stadium is opposite the former Birmingham City University main campus and close to (and served by) Perry Barr railway station. It sits in the fork of the A34 Walsall Road (to its West) and the A453 Aldridge Road. The River Tame flows northwards between the stadium and the A34.Birchfield HarriersThe stadium was originally constructed for an athletics club, Birchfield Harriers who held its opening ceremony on 27 July 1929, having purchased the land on 11 November 1926. The façade still carries their badge, a running stag, rendered in Art Deco style bas relief, carved in 1929 and attributed to William Bloye. The site was formerly a rubbish tip, chiefly for fly ash from a local power station.

  • Good track condition unlike some tracks I know of. St Leger today a good afternoon out with Irish dogs winning. Easy to park and good viewing from upstairs restaurant and bar area.
  • A pleasant evening. The restaurant has a good view of the track. When you book you get a table for the night. Food is adequate. Nothing wonderful but perfectly acceptable. Drinks can be ordered from a waitress or you can get them from the bar yourself. Bets are taken at the table.
  • Home of Birmingham Brummies speedway team, great family night out on a Wednesday night March - October!
  • Good place to chill with friends and lose some money.. real mixture of people here. Good night
  • Speedway and greyhound racing good facility's but prices on food and drink very high.
