Symphony Hall, Birmingham Reviews - Write a Review
Wonderful, wonderful venue for concerts, of all genres. Have been many times, always enjoyed the experience. Karl Jenkins, 'Armed Man'... tonight. Would have , should have had 5 stars, but it was so hot...surely the air conditioning should be perfect by now.... ?
Security is only as good as the staff, pretty poor at the Symphony Hall last night, 13th November 2017. To access the Symphony Hall you have to enter the public doors into the International Convention Centre. There was no security in place. However, to enter the Symphony Hall, which is in the same complex, there was a hardback check with two women and one male. The male pointed out the bag check. I carried on to then be told, as I had simply walked passed the guy, I needed to show my tickets, bit late if I was intent on harm. I showed him my tickets. The two ladies on bag check, well one had walked away talking to a friend whilst my wife had to ask the other one, also talking to a friend, to check her bag. She gave a quick glance and said OK. Any male or female intent on harm could have caused havoc, as the security was a total unless gesture and a waste of money. If you want an easy job contact Birmingham City Council and ask to do security at there events, clearly, all you need to do is turn up.....
We went to see Rob Brydon on Nov 5th. Even though it was a Sunday night and work the next morning we had a Brilliant time. It's a great venue for music concerts or comedy acts. The acoustics are tremendous and seating is very comfortable. Would not hesitate in going there again.
Great Atmosphere, Perfect Acoustics, Excellent Service from the staff. Amazing Venue. Saw Frank Sinatra Jr. here just a couple of months before he sadly passed away it was the best concert I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot of concerts of all different genres.
Went to see a musical concert here, amazing sound and accoustics. The only thing is I would have preferred a little more space between the rows so that people can get past without having to get out of your seat. There is a few places to eat within the building.
