Access Birmingham

Digbeth is home to the creative industries in Birmingham. Just down the road from the fabulous Custard Factory, with its galleries, venues and trendy bars and shops, you will find Access on Heath Mill Lane. Our centre is located in a cool, converted factory, which is modern, light and airy. From here you will be able to explore your creativity in a purpose-built environment.

Access Birmingham is the right choice if you want to get creative in a fun and friendly place. We’re approachable, so your voice can be heard, and you’ll be mixing with other like-minded people.

We have great facilities and experienced tutors to help you on your way and we’re connected into the Birmingham’s creative scene to give you the best opportunities. Why would you go anywhere else?
