Beautiful building.
Sep 2020 • Friends
My twin brother Stephen and I were heading to The Station Bar near Birmingham New Street Railway Station and passed this wonderful theatre building and what a great piece of architecture this is .
Constructed in 1913 from plans from architect S N Cooke ,this beautiful Grade II listed building was Britians first purpose built repertory theatre and although closed at the moment due to the coronavirus pandemic ,the building still looks awesome, very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities, its easy to locate along Station Street,most definitely well worth a visit if you're in the area.

What an amazing evening beyond my expectations. The voices of all four were wonderful . The musical backing was first class too, Although on the side in row C we had a good view although my husband was pleased to be on the end. My only complaint theatre wise would be a didn't take my coat off as I was cold .

Great little theatre

Had a great evening here. The stalls a
are very steep but that meant no bad seats as no heads in the way. Staff very helpful and polite.

Beautiful vintage theatre and fantastically joyous evening with 'Jive Talkin'
Jan 2020
Small and intimate traditional theatre with staff who 'do everything' and a friendly feel. We will definately visit again and pass the word to friends. We had no expectations of 'Jive Talkin'....other than the chance to hear music we remembered from our teens but they excelled and it really felt like being at an intimate late 60's early 70's gig with interaction between the artists and the audience. We went home overflowing with great Bee Gees music but a little sad, when we contemplated where all those years have gone.
