Digbeth Speaks Exhibition: visitor information and events


3-13 October. Mon-Sat 11am-5pm, Sun 1pm-4pm. Lakeside Gallery, Custard Factory, Gibb Street.


Drop-in family workshop, Sunday 6 October 1.30pm-3.30pm. Free.
Making time capsules: in this workshop, the children will be able to explore the idea of a digital time capsule using their own experiences of Digbeth to create drawings and stories. They will use a range of materials to create their own newspaper articles and giant speech bubbles, alongside getting creative on our giant chalk board wall! The workshop is run by Katy Pegg.

Workshop, Wednesday 9 October, 1.30pm. Free
Social History: in the archives: this event looks at the role of archives in social history. Using two very different sets of archive material – relating to Handsworth in the 1980s and the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, a research department that pioneered the study of popular culture – Dr Kieran Connell, a historian at the University of Birmingham, will lead discussion about what archives are, how they develop and the role they play in history-writing.

We look forward to seeing you there!
