Set in the heart of the West Midlands, it was once a hub for the Industrial Revolution that helped to lay the foundations for one of the most evolutionary periods of British history, filled with steel mills, iron foundries and coal mines. A city filled with people who were highly skilled in specialist trades, working together to further the future of the UK. 

200 years later, modern-day Birmingham is the second largest city in the UK, a youthful, energetic and multicultural place with a large base of people that are highly skilled in the new powerhouse creative and tech industries. From The Streets to Black Sabbath, SOSHI Games and Codemaster to Peaky Blinders; Birmingham is the perfect place to mingle with like minded creators.

Digbeth, a key area of Birmingham city centre, is filled with historic industrial buildings; a reminder of the groundbreaking work of past residents. It’s also home to ACC Birmingham and the epicentre of the local creative industries. 

We believe there’s no better place to hone your craft than with us right here in Digbeth, regardless of if you love music, media, games, esports or software development. Every year, a fresh cohort of young creators walk through our doors and become part of a local creative and technological community that is working to redefine what’s possible in their fields.
