  • Event | The Diggin' Digbeth Tavern Tour | 31 May 2018
    RICS Matrics in Birmingham invite you to an interprofessional networking event taking place in Digbeth. The event will take those in attendance on a walking tour to visit various taverns in the district. We will start in Hennesseys bar; a place described by James on Trip Advisor as "cracking". We will subsequently move across to The Anchor; one of the oldest public houses in Birmingham which dates back to 1797. The study Anchor truly lives up to its name. Next on the agenda will be the Engine Room; a converted commercial unit which mixes the industrial past of Digbeth with its creative and exciting future. The final stop on the tour will be Digbeth Dining Club, allowing everyone to try the best street food in the city! This event will give everyone a chance to explore one of the most creative and exciting areas within Birmingham, as well as having the chance to chat with individuals from various working backgrounds. We hope to see you there! Date:  31 May 2018 Time:...
