@ The Custard Factory on Saturday 15th August 2020

If you're a cheese lover - aren't we all? - you're definitely gonna be fondue of this pop-up. Following two sellout years, Cheese Fest is back for a third gloriously goo-related year. Over the one day event, you can expect numerous cheese-only traders, a line-up of DJs and live music, craft brews, a cocktails caravan and fitting street food.

Famous for its warehouse parties, Digbeth has offered another storeroom party venue in Spotlight. Full of gritty charm and a trendy edge, the venue brings in hordes of Birmingham's young and creative minds thanks to its cool chesterfield sofas and vintage trunk tables. 

The Karczma

Fur throws adorn this venue's dining benches and bar stools, whilst traditional Polish artwork hangs effortlessly on the bar's walls. Ideal for a family day out and quirky dining adventures, years of proud heritage and tradition wash over The Karczma. 

Tilt

Paying tribute to a simpler time, Tilt is a cafe bar that thrives off its frivolous atmosphere. The menu boasts an impressive line-up of craft beer, real ales, fine wines and international spirits, but the real attraction here is the venue's pinball machines.
