In addition to the above, acclaimed author JRR Tolkien’s links to Birmingham have been publicised extensively, while inventor of custard Alfred Bird lived here and is immortalised not only in Bird’s Custard but in the city’s Custard Factory arts centre. Annette Badland, who played Babe Smith in EastEnders and whose film roles include Little Voice and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, was born in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham in 1950. Also from Birmingham are actor Michael Staniforth, who played mischievous jester Timothy Claypole in Rentaghost and was born in the Selly Oak area of the city in 1942, and actor/wrestler Pat Roach, best known for his role as bricklayer Bomber in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.

Although radio DJ John Peel is sometimes thought to be from Birmingham, the only reference we can find is that he was a regular compere and visitor at Mothers rock club in Erdington, Birmingham, which was voted the world's best rock venue in 1969 and 1970. Peel also contributed the foreword to Kevin Duffy’s book about the club: Mothers, The Home of Good Sounds 1968-1971.

They were discovered while out clubbing together at the Brasshouse in Broad Street, and introduced to record company owner Errol Rennals. https://www.bcu.ac.uk/news-events/bcu175 https://www.thefamouspeople.com/birmingham-1388.php
