    NEXT UP…. END OF AN ERA WEEKENDER – THE FACTORY CLUB CLOSING PARTIES First up for Eclectricity in 2010 is the “END OF AN ERA WEEKENDER” on Easter Bank Holiday weekend 2010…. as the Factory Club @ Custard Factory closes down for good, we are proud to putting on the official closing parties….. It goes without saying that it will be an emotional end to what has been Birmingham’s finest music institution... We will ensure it goes out in style!! Featuring….RICARDO VILLALOBOS, LAURENT GARNIER, SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, HIGH CONTRAST, GOLDIE, CASSY, NOISIA, NORMAN JAY, MARTYN, NERO, JOY ORBISON, LONDON ELEKTRICITY, HATCHA, DANNY BYRD, LOGISTICS & loads more…. A WEEKEND OF QUALITY OF EVENTS CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF THE FACTORY CLUB (FORMERLY MEDICINE BAR) IN BIRMINGHAM. APRIL BANK HOLIDAY WEEKENDER (FRI 2nd APRIL – SUN 4TH APRIL 2010) Unfortunately, the rumours are true…The Factory Club (formerly known as Medicine Bar) at the Custard Factory is closing down..... The new decade heralds a different direction for the Custard Factory and that is the development of the site as a more of an office based environment. As a result, the dark underground club space set around the charismatic lake in the courtyard of the Custard Factory will be winding down as potential investors look at the space along the lines of restaurants/studios etc… Lakeside Marquee events will still happen for one off special events but these will be fewer and far between.... However, the days of the Factory Club space (The former Medicine Bar) and Kitchen being the regular host to your hedonistic night out are unfortunately numbered! There’s only one way to end this… after 15 years of the most forward thinking music events Birmingham has ever seen…. On a high note! This set of dates means a lot to us.... Some of the most memorable nights Birmingham has ever witnessed have taken place here and it has been nothing short of an inspiration for the cities alternative independent music culture. It’s a sad loss to Birmingham’s nightlife and there’s only one way to end it…. in style..... with an almighty send off to end all send off’s… and that’s what this Easter weekender is about. To be frank it would be rude not to!.... It's the end of an era!!!!!

    This is a bloody disgrace, this has gotta be one of the best clubs in England at the moment

    Yeah, apperently its all gunna go off on May day bank holiday too, where they r gunna have a massive carnival, but the last date for the actual 'custard factory' is easter weekend, with this Hospitality being the last dnb night there
    Where's all the quality nights gunna go? Bet Esape knows, being the oracle that he is

    best thing about this place, the marquee, most deffiantly... i mean, i know they said that will still hold events soooooooo maybe not all hope is lost, BUT, u can smoke in there, they have several GOOD food stands sometimes, a well lit, comfortable outside area, very nice chillout area, 2 sick rooms (warehouse, marquee) 2 bars, a newsagents!! very friendly security, decent toilets, and obviously top notch sound system... the list goes on and on for me, its a shame birmingham is so big and CLOSED for when the events finished, lol.
