The Custard Factory, Digbeth - A Birmingham Gem!

Devonshire House on High Street Deritend in Digbeth was built in 1902 for Alfred Bird and Sons Limited who produced egg free custard

They continued at this site until 1964 when production was relocated to Banbury. The arts facility we have now was set up in 1992 by Bernie Gray, and later taken over by his son Lucan Gray who owned the site until 2017. Zellig opened in Deveonshire House in 2010 with offices and workspace units. The Custard Factory is also famed for it’s graffiti street art which changes regularly
