The Drum is an arts centre based in Birmingham, England, and established as the UK national centre for Black British and British Asian arts. It started hosting events in 1994 as a new culture facility on the site of Aston Hippodrome Theatre. The venue offers you an amazing experience with its decent capacity of 470 seats, spread over 2 two auditoriums. Famous performers as Shazia Mirza, Patrick Monahan, Betty Wright and many others had their shows hosted by this arts centre.
The venue is located on 144 Potters Ln, Birmingham, B6 4UU, and the means of getting there are:

By bus: buses 33, 51, 52 can lead you a couple of minutes away from the venue. Number 424 can leave you very close to the venue as well.
