Legacy Centre of Excellence

We are Europe’s largest independent Black-owned business and arts centre. Based in Aston, one of Birmingham’s most diverse communities, we are dedicated to championing and enhancing our local and national community.

We exist to offer great cultural, artistic and educational activities that uplift and upskill. We do this by providing the best in events, workshops and projects that encourage people to come together in a safe curated space, which puts their individual and collective needs at the heart.

Formerly the Drum Arts Centre, the venue was purchased in 2019 by 7E Youth Academy, a Birmingham based Social Enterprise founded by Keith ‘Cipher’ Shayaam-Smith. Our newly refurbished multi-purpose building has two theatres, café, restaurant, offices, business suite and multimedia suites that are accessible and available to all.
