Symphony Hall - Review

If you’re the type of person who has an ear for the finer things in life, look no further- the majestic Birmingham Symphony Hall makes all your dreams come true. Opened in 1991, the Symphony Hall hosts wonderful performances every week from artists around the world, and its world class acoustics and spectacular auditorium make it one of the finest concert halls not just in the United Kingdom, but in the entire world.

With a seating capacity of over 2,500 people, the Birmingham Symphony Hall sets the benchmark by which concert halls are measured today. Although it is designed for classical music performances, the hall has been host to some memorable performances from the world of jazz, world music, folk, rock, pop and stand-up comedy as well. It also houses numerous conferences, graduation ceremonies and community events, making it one of the most important places for the people of Birmingham.

The Symphony Hall is also home to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, who perform at the venue regularly.

The cutting edge acoustics have been designed by some of the world’s top sound engineers, and has been planned in such a way that the best sound reaches every corner of the hall.

In 2001, a massive 6,000 pipe Symphony organ was installed in the hall.

Symphony Hall, Birmingham Reviews

  • We love Symphony Hall, a good venue for going to any show. The only gripe is that when getting a drink in the intervals your forced into being less than cautious, pushing in at the bars is the only way of getting served before the shows restart. The seating arrangement is good and it doesn't matter too much where you are seated so we usually pick the balcony seats as the prices are very reasonable. There are plenty of hotels within a 5min walk from the venue to suit all pockets, but my advice is to find a hotel that has its own parking as there isn't much close by.

  • Beautiful venue.. if you have vertigo do not go for level 5a or maybe even level 5 and 4 depending on how bad your vertigo is.. thank you to the staff who found me a lower seat in a sell out gig

  • Very impressed after my first visit last week to see a Band. Amazing acoustics and good seating though it would of been better had there been more room between rows of seats. Overall very good!

  • I went to see Magnum at the rescheduled concert. Good staff and reasonable prices in the bar. My only criticism was that they closed the bar after the gig, despite the band staying behind to sign autographs.

  • One of the utmost very best UK concert halls. I have been here as a punter countless times now, and even better have had the opportunity to perform four times in the place with great bands to very full houses. As a working Muso it's an easy stage to play. I'm not saying the best or a stress free magical live environment, but the space is awesome. As a punter it's more than fine, though beers are poured in a plastic glass which is never ever cool, though understandable with a billon heavy drinking musician's in the venue during my stays there. It ain't cheap either. Staff seem pleasant indeed, and on late night walks through heading home to the hotel, it's a calm space to witness in its design (though I'm no architect). I'll be back next year without a doubt.
