ULI UK: Midlands YL event - ’Discover Digbeth’

4:45pm - 7:00pm BST


Meeting Point Outside Hotel La Tour Birmingham B5 5JE UNITED KINGDOM
The ULI Midlands Young Leaders are delighted to invite you to attend their next event: Discover Digbeth.
Home to Birmingham’s growing creative culture and once the centre of the city’s industrial activity, Digbeth is one of the most distinctive parts of the city. With unique redevelopments such as The Custard Factory, Fazeley Studios and a range of art galleries, pubs and restaurants, Digbeth has been gaining more and more attention in recent years.
Yet despite this attention, for many Digbeth remains an area of the city yet to be discovered. The ULI Midlands Young Leaders are seeking to change this, hosting the ‘Discover Digbeth’ event. Beginning with a walking tour of the Digbeth area, we will explore the historic and creative sights, as well as learn about how the arrival of HS2 and other emerging regeneration schemes will change this part of the city. The event will conclude with a discussion at Impact Hub about the future of this fascinating and unique part of the city.
Attendees will meet at 4.45pm outside Hotel La Tour and begin the tour into Digbeth, finishing at Impact Hub in the Walker Building on Oxford St, Digbeth. The event will finish at approximately 7pm.
