The Custard Factory Arts Complex is set in five acres of factory buildings. It was originally constructed by Sir Alfred Frederick Bird, the son of Alfred Bird, who was the inventor of egg-free instant custard. With the help of city redevelopment funding, the area was initially developed in two phases and is home to a community of artistic and media businesses. The Complex includes Gibb Street Warehouse
which hosts large-scale club and festival events as well as an artificial lake in the main building that can be drained and used as a club space.
