World class live music in Brum

Town Hall and Symphony Hall Birmingham, two of the UK’s leading music venues, present over 600 incredible live events each year.

Recognised as one of the most impressive examples of Roman Revival civic architecture, Town Hall Birmingham, completed in 1834, is a Grade I listed concert hall and an internationally recognised venue for music.

The landmark building in the city’s Victoria Square, has showcased many premieres and reverberated to every type of music from Elgar to the Rolling Stones, Mendelssohn to The Beatles and Count Basie to Black Sabbath during its 177 year history.

Following its reopening in 2007 after an extensive renovation, the much-loved Town Hall continues to host a wide variety of events including rock and pop gigs, choral and chamber performances, family shows, recitals, weddings, awards ceremonies and much more.

 Symphony Hall opened in 1991 to immediate public and critical acclaim. With its world class acoustics and stunning auditorium it is considered to be not only the UK’s finest concert hall but also one of the best in the world. The 2,262 capacity hall celebrated its 21st Anniversary in 2012, and continues to present some of the biggest names from the worlds of music, entertainment and comedy.
