Loved the building.
Sep 2020 • Friends
Although I never attended a performance in Symphony Hall,think its still closed due to coronavirus pandemic but I must say that I thought the building looked amazing, a modern structure, its glass fronted facade reminded me so much of some of the modern architecture to be found in Berlin, its very photogenic especially with the water feature in front of Symphony Hall,makes for some great photographic opportunities and is easy to locate on Centenary Square.
Most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

World class acts play here, it’s amazing – the acoustics are superb and the seating is such that it’s impossible to get a bad seat.

Awful venue & show
Mar 2020 • Friends
Saw Stuart Hall at BSH today - a truly awful boring performance - people walking out from the start - also venue is terrible, huge queues for toilets and a useless small bar with 2 staff - totally pathetic - and for some reason a plastic sheet had been laid over the carpet which was a real trip hazard.

Terrible management of the whole venue - WHY ?

This is not worth taxpayers money if this is how we’re treated - complete contempt and truly terrible.

Best in Britain
Dec 2019 • Couples
Without any doubt the finest venue in the country. Knocks the acoustics in the Albert hall into a cocked hat. One of the best in the world. Easy to get to and from, great view from every seat I’ve ever sat in.

Beautiful Decor, A feast for the Ears
Dec 2019
The acoustics re simply out of this world. I have been here many times, in the last three years with different seatings. Am yet to sit somewhere where I am disappointed by either sound or view. Just go and enjoy the experience. A friend of mine who lives in Berlin, and who is a passionate classical music lover told me about Symphony Hall's amazing acoustics even before I moved to Birmingham, and he has never ever been here. :-o

Fabulous venue!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Last night we went to see Queen Symphonic at this amazing venue. It is modern yet classic, and the acoustics are so good you get great sound wherever you sit. This was our fourth visit and we are already looking forward to the next!

Staff are plentiful and very helpful and there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby in Brindley Place for a pre-existing show meal/ drink.
