Digbeth First Fridays
Digbeth First Fridays Launches Friday 2 May
Digbeth is coming alive on the first Friday of each month with exhibitions, late-night openings, special events, culture in unexpected spaces, live music, street food and more.
With different things to see and do each month anything can happen on a First Friday night out and visitors are invited to grab a Disloyalty Card and collect stamps from different participating venues to trade for treats as they sample the great independent culture this unique part of Birmingham has to offer.
First Friday offers variety, mystery and quality and the first event on Friday 2 May features a host of activity including:
Digbeth Dining Club host Birmingham’s finest streetfood producers for the Midland heats of the British Street Food Awards from 5pm until midnight.
Late night exhibitions, music and performances at Minerva Works with Vivid Projects, Grand Union and Stryx from 6–9pm
Earth oven cooked pizza and art at Edible Eastside 5–9pm

Ruth Claxton, Associate Director of Eastside Projects said:
We think this is a brilliant initiative. Digbeth is just ten minutes walk from New Street station and has a great, independent vibe with a mixture of things to do that you just don’t find anywhere else in the city. We are really looking forward to seeing First Fridays grow over the coming months as more and more artists, musicians, creatives and businesses put on extraordinary events making Digbeth THE place to come on a First Friday night out
