Digbeth is a district right in the centre of Birmingham, often described as the ‘Shoreditch’ of the Brum with its independent coffee shops, antique and thrift stores, warehouse nightclubs and hipster vibe. Recently a new venue popped up in the custard factory - Ghetto Golf Birmingham (GGB). They are self-described as - “a concept that combines crazy golf, theatre, cocktails and DJ’s in an art-infused environment that showcases the very best street art and their writers.” Sounds fun right!? The website credits their inspiration to be Darryl ‘Cornbread’ McCray, a street artist from Philadelphia. He became well-known for tagging subway stations and as the GGB website states “Philadelphia Ghettos”. Cornbread Mcray was quite the man; he was a public speaker and youth advocate who influenced The Mural Arts Program and the acknowledgment of street artistry.
