The Diskery is one of the jewels in the Southside crown, a long standing vinyl emporium which attracts customers young and old to browse their extensive collection of rare and mainstream records. Amid recession and the ubiquity of digital music, the Diskery quietly thrives by doing things a little differently.  If you have never been, you owe yourself a visit.  Julia Chance Southside BID Manager  

Over the past decade or so, Southside has emerged as a distinctive quarter within Birmingham’s expanding city centre. This welcome change has been driven by a unique mix of developments including those restaurants, bars and clubs which characterise the area’s Chinatown and Gay Village, the Arcadian Centre, the redeveloped Birmingham Hippodrome and Birmingham Royal Ballet complex, the Radisson Blu Hotel and O2 Academy.   The Southside BID (Business Improvement District) began in 2011 after a successful ballot amongst local businesses.  The BID exists to help improve the conditions for businesses to grow and thrive in the district.  The BID does this by investing in improvements to the environment including safety, greenery and cleanliness plus providing an improved brand and profile through marketing and PR for all businesses.  THe BID also focuses on giving businesses a voice in local issues which may affect them in the local area.  Find out more about the BID here
