Our Story

Fazeley Events oversees a portfolio of unique, character rich and versatile event venues in Digbeth, which are an exciting alternative to run of the mill corporate spaces and ‘cookie cutter’ wedding venues. We appeal to engaged couples or event organisers who are looking for a stunning, stylish and memorable venue to stand out from the crowd.


Fazeley Events runs two beautifully restored iconic venues that are ingrained in Birmingham’s history. They both date back date back over 150 years to the industrial revolution, in the days when Birmingham was known as the workshop of the world.

The Custard Factory is set in a collection of Victorian riverside factories in which Alfred Bird manufactured his infamous instant eggless custard (invented 1837) and exported it around the world.

Whilst all of this was happening at the Custard Factory, things were busy across the road in Fazeley Street and Floodgate Street too. AB Phipson designed a Unitarian Sunday School in 1865 and a Unitarian chapel opened next door to it in 1876, designed by architect George Ingall. Today these buildings have been breathtakingly transformed to create the Grand Gallery reception and Suite 7 conference room at Fazeley Studios.

Both The Custard Factory and Fazeley Studios have been lovingly and sensitively restored to retain their period features and charming character, but with a distinctive, imaginative design aesthetic befitting their place as the anchor sites of Birmingham’s trendy creative quarter.

Fazeley Events is Born

Fazeley Events started life in 2010, initially offering a range of parties in Birmingham, wedding services for couples, AND meetings/small conferences solutions to SMEs – but demand for our events quickly grew, resulting in large brands now coming to Digbeth for their corporate events.

Fazeley Events Today

Today, we are able to cater for large bespoke, 600-strong events across our venues in Digbeth. In a short space of time we have built up a solid reputation for hosting successful events, attracting a large number of high-end brands and companies to the revolutionary area of Birmingham. Lloyds TSB, Honda, Nandos, Clarins, Red Bull, New Look, Argos, Goldsmiths, NHS, Conservative Party and National Grid, have all hosted events at Fazeley Studios and The Custard Factory.

In 2016 alone, we hosted over 70 weddings at Fazeley Studios. The venue have become a hugely popular choice for couples who are on the hunt for a venue that offers both beauty and versatility along with bags of character.

  • We held our staff conference at the Custard Factory in May and it was the perfect day – everything went smoothly, the food was delicious and the staff could not have been more accommodating, running round to make sure everything was just so. Will be back next year!

  • We were looking to move away from our traditional conference/meeting style venues and Fazeley Studios delivered the perfect solution. The team at Fazeley really helped to make our day a success and were a pleasure to work with. We wouldn’t hesitate in coming back!

  • We couldn’t have asked for more from Fazeley Studios as a venue for our University Society ball. The staff were incredibly helpful in all aspects, from advice during the booking process to tailoring the set up of the venue to our specific needs. It was the combination of all of these aspects that make our event such a success!

  • The whole venue looked stunning and we have had so many compliments from our guests about the fantastic place we found for our wedding. It is a beautiful place, full of great people and should you choose it for your celebration, you will have a day to remember forever, just like we did.
