It was 200 years ago to the day that Matthew Boulton died.
Many thousands of people travel along Broad Street everyday and go past his statue without knowing anything about him. Now our film will help to tell people who he is and what he did.
He was a wealthy, industrial person who helped to set up manufacturing in Birmingham.
Wreaths were laid and it was a very respectful short service to mark his death.
I am glad I was able to be there to commemorate his past.
