Digbeth is Good is brought to you by:

Pamela Pinski is the current Secretary of Digbeth Residents Association, but assures us that all work and no play does not make her a dull girl. When not attending to her secretarial duties, Pam can be found sampling ‘art and culture’ – enjoying live music, art exhibitions, and propping up bars in Digbeth.


Midge by Pete AshtonMidge is the self-proclaimed Digbeth Slacker who keeps Brum Punks in the know. Invariably found enjoying great gigs in The Wagon and Horses, and everywhere in between.



Nicky GetgoodNicky Getgood managed the website when it began in June 2008 until December 2011, when she defected to Cardiff. She still sometimes chips in from afar.
