We stopped off here for a rest/people watching on a recent visit to Birmingham. The Building is beautiful complementing the stunning Victoria Square with the statue of Queen Victoria. Great place to people watch and enjoy the lovely architecture. Highly recommended.

We went to the Town Hall in March, having not been for a while, things have changed, and the seating is vastly improved etc. The Loreena McKennitt Concert was absolutely brilliant ... and very much hope she comes back again soon.
