Town Hall BirminghamCurrently Open [Closes at 06:00 pm]
The Birmingham Town Hall is one of the oldest buildings in the city. First opened to the public in 1834, it has long been a renowned concert hall and venue for popular assemblies. Situated in Victoria Square, its outstanding Roman architecture and historical significance makes it one of the most breath-taking sights in all of Birmingham.
Not only is the Town Hall a delight to sightseeing tourists, but after a major renovation from 2002 to 2008, it now also hosts a diverse programme of events which include jazz, world, folk, rock, pop and classical concerts, organ recitals, spoken word, dance, family, educational and community performances. The best way to enjoy Town Hall is to simply book a ticket for one of their performances and sit back while you watch the magic unfold.
Town Hall has a programme known as Town Hall Associate Artists where they build long term relationships with performing musicians. Due to this programme, you can regularly catch a cappella, choir and classical music performances at Town Hall.
In order to get to know Town Hall better, you can book a guided tour to take you through the venue, as you learn everything there is to know about this historic monument.
Town Hall is now managed alongside the equally famous Symphony Hall. Although it has about half the seating capacity of the latter, the history and legacy of Town Hall make it very difficult to choose between the two. Then again, you could just visit both!

Town Hall Birmingham Reviews & Ratings
As the last train leaves Birmingham about 10.30 on a Saturday night to Stafford are there any other private transport available. I know I can get a train later to Wolverhampton and wondered what the cost would be in a taxi from there even.Answer Report Abuse
I think buses are also available. I have heard of the one that leaves around 11.20 pm. And as far as I know, a taxi will cost you a little more than £65. But, it is always better to check the official websites for updated timetables and prices.Report Abuse
