The acoustics of this Hall are fantastic. It doesn't matter if you are seeing a rock concert or an opera you can be sure of an amazing experience. That is of course that the act is up to it!

Liked everything about this experience. Booking was easy; performance (Gilbert and Sullivan) was top class; seats and acoustics were excellent. Looking forward to visiting again.

We came to the Birmingham Youth Music Festival. It was the first time we had been. Easy disabled access with ramps, lifts, and parking available.

Birminghams leading concert hall - great acoustics with their variable acoustic chambers, a good range of events there with comfortable seating all round. I've sat in most parts of the hall and there is always a good view and sound (the sound middle back is great for an orchestra.
