Making Strydes; 10,000 revellers expected to join Tinchy and a host of stars at Digbeth bash: Clubs.

Byline: Will Oliphant

PROUDLY PRESENTS STUDENTS are going to be taking over Digbeth tomorrow when the district plays host to "the mother of all parties" featuring stars including Tinchy Stryder and Birmingham's own Mr Hudson.

Other acts at the Block Party event, which will also be open to non students, include Chipmunk, The Wombats, Hadouken and Master Shortie with DJ sets from Scott Mills, the Mystery Jets and beatboxer Killa Kela among others.

More than 50 acts are expected to be performing and about 10,000 people are expected to attend the event which will be over 15 arenas in Digbeth.

Several roads in Digbeth will be blocked off for the event which will also take in nightclubs Air, The Custard Factory and The Rainbow.

Ministry of Sound will be coming to the Factory Club in the Custard Factory along with Radio 1's Dave Spoon and veteran DJ, Fabio.

The Custard Factory's Library Space will be turned over to a silent disco - there will also be a funfair, foam party, rock karaoke and a live skating showcase.

Keen to get as many people in as possible, the organisers will be busing in revellers from more than 70 university campuses around the UK including Cambridge, Leeds, Liverpool and even York.

Tickets for the event cost pounds 30 including return coach trip to and from the venue and drinks on the site start from pounds 1.50. For a full line-up, more information or tickets visit www.studentblockparty.
