“Ian Anderson & Jethro Tull - Wow Symphony Hall”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The venue is great (never been before) Access and Exits a-plenty Its a fabulous venue with all seating seeming to have excellent views (even the ones at the back I think) The sounds are terrific (as you'd expect from a Symphony Hall) Loos are nice and clean and staff were very helpful _ (Try parking at Paradise Circus multi storey carpark - its close enough to walk and if you get there after 6pm it only costs £3.00 - cheaper by far than others

“Yes to Symphony Hall and Yes”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Had a choice of Symphony Hall or royal Albert to see Yes on the latest tour. Went for Birmingham having enjoyed a previous concert there. Wonderful facilities, easy access and excellent sound from a great band who performed really well that night. Great place to see one of the best prog bands in the world....still!

“A world class venue”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

A great place to see any sort of music especially classical. Great views from most seats, great acoustics, appalling bar service.

“Fantastic Venue for any Music Type”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Visited here in early May during the Birmingham dance festival to see an event called Concert Danse. If you are visiting Birmingham, the Symphony Hall is well worth a visit.
Easily accessible inside the International Convention Centre, it is also close to Birmingham City Centre.
If you want to eat before/after your concert, try one of the many bars and restaurants around Brindley Square (there is also a good car park there).
