Out and about in Brum

The UK's second city, Birmingham, is the hometown of many of the world's ground-breaking musicians, including Duran Duran, Black Sabbath, and UB40. In these more contemporary times, we're looking to Village Bully (band), Trieste (DJ) and Sophie Lou (MC) for inspiration.

Your local studios are snugly situated in the graffitied heart of Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, Digbeth, a stone's throw from the Custard Factory and Eastside Projects, meaning there's always something going on. If you're after some fresh air, the local park — Kingston Hill — is a great place to chill.

Right next door to the studios you'll find Mutt Motorcycle Company — who do a great cup of coffee. Peckish? Digbeth Dining Club has always got a mouth-watering line-up of the world's greatest street food traders. For a round of drinks and 'dough' head to Digbeth Brew Co.
