“Wonderful acoustics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Had not been to the Symphony Hall before, and hearing a large sized orchestra like the Philharmonia play Holst's The Planets conducted by Ashkenazy was a great introduction! Seating was comfortable, and because I booked rather late it was not possible to sit together but that was a detail which did of course not detract from the fact that it was a wonderful experience. We will be coming back for more!

“Symphony Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is a great venue for smaller intimate concerts, not that it's that small, however it's not impersonal like the much larger Arena type venues.

“Wish I lived nearer!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

A superb venue for music and everyone should visit at least once if they are in Birmingham. Easy to reach if staying centrally and surrounded by lots of places for pre-drinks/meals etc.

“Excellent Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Really love this place for its intimacy and superb staff.

Visiting has always been a pleasure despite some others failing to be able to work out which is their seat and then arguing the point.
