GETTING HERE

We recommend using public transport whenever possible. Digbeth is well served by bus and train services (the nearest stations are Moor Street and New Street). Plan your journey at www.networkwestmidlands.com

 

INTRODUCING OLA, OUR TRAVEL SPONSOR

If you need a speedy and safe way to get your gang home, try Ola.

Birmingham Weekender in Digbeth has joined up with Ola, the newest ride-hailing app in town, with over 50,000 customers in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Ola drivers take home more of the fare riders pay, and thanks to great welcome offers and ongoing discounts, riders also pay less.

To ride with Ola, download the app from your app store and get set up in minutes, or find out more at www.olacabs.com.

 

FINDING YOUR EVENTS

Use the map on page 24 of the brochure, or visit our visitor information stand at the Custard Factory, to find the location of events and performances. If you need help, ask a festival volunteer who will do their best to point you in the right direction.

 

WET WEATHER

Venues and timings may change in the event of bad weather. Follow us on social media @bhamweekender or ask one of our volunteers for updates.

 

TICKETS

Birmingham Weekender is free of charge, with mostly no need to book. Just turn up on the day! Please note that some events may be busy so if there is something you’re desperate to see, we recommend that you arrive early.

Some workshops and walking events operate
 on a first-come-first-served or pre-booked basis – check listing for details.

 

ACCESSIBILITY

Many of our venues have good accessibility but we regret that – due to their post-industrial nature – some are accessible only by steps. We suggest you check the website of your event venue to check their access details, or email us at info@culturecentral.co.uk for advice.

 

FOOD AND DRINK

You can find cafes, bars and restaurants around the Custard Factory and on Heath Mill Lane, Floodgate Street, River Street, Digbeth High Street and at Thinktank Science Museum. Digbeth Dining Club is open Friday 4-11pm, Saturday 1-11pm and Sunday 12-8pm. The nearest cash point is Digbeth Coach Station.
