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.

To see the Symphony Hall and be part of a truly world class concert experience, check out the upcoming shows online and book your tickets. Odds are, you’ll end up watching one of the finest shows of your lifetime. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Birmingham itinerary 1 day.

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 but much close by.

  • This is a beautiful hall. Obviously, the acoustics are excellent and I have always been able to see the stage well. A varied programme of events. Well worth checking what's on.

  • Symphony hall is a great venue, it has good facilities and puts on some top class events. Unfortunately and through no fault of the venue management, it is a nightmare to get to the car parks nearby because of all the road closures. These roads have been closed for ages now, I'm sure it must put some people off booking tickets which is a great shame. Get your act together Birmingham city council! You are doing your city a great disservice!!

  • The actual Symphony Hall is magnificent but don't try to get any meals within the complex they sell only snacks. Far better to eat and drink outside the complex and come in for the shows. You should also allow plenty of time to get interval drinks as service at the bar can be slow.

  • A wonderful venue, and a great asset to the city of Birmingham. I was on the guided tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour was done professionally yet informally and with just the right mix of information and humour. Look out for the tours on the website. I'm due to be on the Town Hall tour shortly, and I'm really looking forward to it.
