CONSTRUCTION is underway at a new independent events venue and community facility, which will provide a permanent home for Digbeth Dining Club.
The new venue, located in Longbridge, will feature events space with seating for up to 200 people offering indoor and outdoor space for community and corporate uses, and will be operated by Digbeth Dining Club.
Elliot Sellars, development director at St. Modwen, said: “Herbert’s Yard will become a real centrepiece for Longbridge town centre and will provide something different for the local community, so we’re delighted to now be starting on site to bring the venue to life.
“We’ve already had a hugely positive reaction to our plans when we announced Digbeth Dining Club would be operating the site, and we’re looking forward to working closely with them to ensure Herbert’s Yard provides the events and facilities which will benefit the entire community.”
Herbert’s Yard will operate as a café and deli between 11am and 2pm daily.
Construction is expected to take place throughout the summer, with the first events being held later this year.
Jack Brabant, director of Digbeth Dining Club said: “We’re confident that Herbert’s Yard is going to be a really special space for the area and for the wider community.”
