“Special Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

A visit to Symphony Hall never disappoints. The interior is amazing and a wonderful place to spend an evening being entertained. A great view wherever you are seated with wonderful acoustics. Visiting Symphony Hall is a much more enjoyable experience than attending a show/concert/gig at one of the other Birmingham venues e.g. NEC which is far too large and impersonal. Always a diverse choice of shows available ranging from classical concerts to individual artists. It really is a lovely place to spend an evening with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. If you have not paid a visit, put this venue at the top of your list!

“Great Atmospheric View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have always loved to just walking through the Symphony Hall even when I'm not planning to listen or watch any performance. The interior architecture is really amazing. When you reach to the back of the hall out to the canal; you'll feel mesmerized by the atmosphere and activities.

Definitely a place to roam around to show your foreign friends! promise!

“Splendid experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We have been going to Symphony Hall since it opened. The quality of the experience is second to none. All around vision and great sound. Excellent choice of seating. A web site that is so easy to use and allows you to pick your own seats. Pre show there is plenty of choice in Brindley Place to have a meal.

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Best venue for classical music, very good for amplified gigs too. The auditorium is just amazing. If you like organ music, treat yourself, any concert will do, you just need to listen to this wonderful instrument.
