Digbeth’s alternative Christmas fair, Digmas, returns to The Custard Factory on Saturday 20th December. This year’s line up is the biggest and best yet.
Digmas features a packed festive programme with Santa’s Grotto and real reindeer; a carousel; children’s face-painting and crafts; sizzling street food by the award winning Digbeth Dining Club and a pop up ‘get merry’ bar by Alfie Birds, Urban Village vintage fair and lots of live music.
Be there to see Santa and his reindeer start proceedings as they parade down Gibb Street at 12.30pm.
The event champions Birmingham’s independent shopping experience, with a Christmas market selling unique gifts and crafts and exclusive discounts on offer at many of The Custard Factory’s 30 independent shops and cafes.
There will be lots of activities and entertainment for kids and adults, including a pop up make up bar by Make-Up Central, cupcake decorating, t-shirt printing, jewellery making and a rodeo reindeer.
Digmas is different to the mainstream Christmas markets and is a celebration of the Birmingham and Digbeth’s creative, independent scene. People will find gifts that can’t be found on the high street and support local shops and traders in the process.
The Digmas programme of live music includes traditional carol singing, the Roo Savill Trio, The Glamophones, Rich McMahon Folk and Clutching at Straws. Digbeth Dining Club will be bringing along some of its most popular traders including The Meatshack, Esme’s Seafood Kitchen, Fat Duck Spuds, The Bournville Waffle Company and Vegan Grindhouse.
