The Custard Factory’s Summer Jam

25th July 2017


Make sure you’re in Birmingham on 12th of August for The Custard Factory’s Summer Jam! There’s going to be amazing food, a Record Fair AND (most importantly we think, but we may be biased!) live music from some amazing BIMM Artists!

So, we wanted to share a little taster of the guys we’re bringing with…

Edward Sansom

Edward Sansom is a vibrant up and coming artist. He blends a kaleidoscope of ’80s pop with the darker melodic side of the ’90s. Creating a melancholic euphoria!
