Hidden coffee shops if you want a quick meeting. Only negative is the stairs are steep if you have bad knees, getting the lift is long winded.

The show was absolutely fantastic. The orchestra took the film to a completely new level and made it even better. The bar was busy but it still never took long to be served. All our interval drinks were easy to find.

Just fantastic! The hall wasn't full which was surprising as the concert was excellent, the conductor was funny and the added touch with the Star Wars characters was a real bonus for the kids and Star Wars fans alike.

I regularly attend concerts here and the place is most welcoming. A large lounge and bar area, is a foretaste to the wonderful modern concert hall, with superb acoustics. Concerts particularly with the CBSO are always to a high standard. Thoroughly recommended.

The venue was the Birmingham Symphony Hall. It was new year's eve and the London Concert Orchestra serenaded us into the New Year with an extraordinary display which drew applause after applause. It was a perfect way to transit from 2018 to 2019.

Attended a Christmas Carol Concert by the choir from Salisbury Cathedral which was excellent. The programme was varied and challenging showcasing the choir's great ability.

The stalls at both sides have good views of the stage so should be good for seeing the orchestra
