As always, the hall and surrounding areas were spotless and the staff extremely helpful. Access is very easy and there are many car parks within easy walking distance. If you want to eat there are plenty of... More

We went to see and hear the R.A.F. College band. We had a very enjoyable evening and were impressed with the and and it's supporting entertainers. The event was called The best of British and we certainly got it. Symphony hall is a superb venue for this type of entertainment.

Whilst we did dress up there was a variety of approaches as some did the same but others came fairly casual in jeans. This created a nice informal atmosphere. I would hugely recommend... More

Beautiful place to enjoy live music. The whole place is spotless clean and you are looked after all the way from the moment you enter. Already got tickets for another two concerts here next year.

Visited with my wife to see the amazing Alfie Bowe and Michael Ball. Although we were near the rear of the top tier the view and sound was great.

We decided to combine a weekend away in Brum and a concert here (Beethoven and Adams) and were glad we did. This is an impressive building both inside and out with good acoustics, decent seating and right in the heart of the city.

The acoustics were fantastic and made for a great evening watching deacon blue. It was supposed to be a seated concert however, by the third song, everyone was on... More
