Get out of town, The Custard Factory was built by the very man that invented custard over 100 years ago? You bet folks. Originally a 5-acre spread of factories built by Sir Alfred Bird (the inventor of custard don't you know), this lone warrior remains and is standing out proud in amongst the industrial drones surrounding it. Now home to Birmingham's cool and quirky crowd, there's a lot more to this needle in a haystack than meets the eye.
The Custard Factory in Digbeth is smothered in original graffiti pieces and locally commissioned artwork.
Surrounded by some of the best clubs in Digbeth, The Custard Factory is a multi-coloured mecca of independent stores, creative offices, art studios, restaurants, bars and more. A great place to visit on any buzzing Saturday afternoon, The Custard Factory may only be a stones throw a way from the Bull Ring, but lives in it's own quirky world of charm and character.
Take a stroll down The Custard Factory's main strip to take in the quirky sights.
With Digbeth being the Birmingham home of warehouse parties and weekend raves, it's no surprise to find that The Custard Factory itself has room to party. With the new and bespoke Gibb Street Warehouse sitting amongst its mids, The Custary Factory has opened its doors to a crowd buzzing for the Acid-House warehouse parties of old. A venue helping to make Saturday nights in Birmingham a Digbeth destination.
