First settled in the 17th century, Digbeth has a rich history. Digbeth and neighboring Deritend combined was the first centre of industry in Birmingham, England. Highly industrialised, with numerous factories, businesses, and public houses to serve the workers. Now Digbeth is known for its part in the development of the British electronic music scene, as well as venues popular in the rave music scene, such as the Custard Factory.
Revitalisation of Digbeth has transformed this once-somewhat dreary centre into a thriving creative centre, with businesses converting old warehouse-type spaces into funky, functional stores and offices. A hub for gaming and arts companies as well as digital media companies, Digbeth also offers a bustling and culturally diverse nightlife and music scene.
