Went to see Nils Lofgren this week. From the ease of booking & receipt of the tickets to the friendly welcome at the door this venue is excellent. Due to its size every concert is intimate. Even the rear rows of seats are close enough...More

Perhaps I was expecting a sense of grandeur with the venue - certainly not the case. Birmingham city centre presents a challenge in itself. Little to no signposting of venues. Incredible traffic diversions and bollards which suggest the council are expecting a massive invasion/attack. When/if...More

A super venue for concerts, films etc. The place has such a history of previous events, lovingly restored.

Well worth booking on a tour of the Town Hall. Seeing behind the scenes and hearing the history of the building is worth every penny of the price.

This building looks amazing. It wouldn’t look out of place in Athens. Tall stone pillars make the architecture look superb

Beautiful building amongst a number of fine civic buildings. Looks Greek or neo classical in style. I believe a concert hall but not open when we visited.

This is a fine building in the neo classical design in a lovely square. It has been well cleaned and looks very fine. At the back of the building is the lovely art gallery, which is well worth visiting.

We came here over the weekend to watch a comedy act. I thought it started at 7 but turns out it started at 8, so we got to enjoy the bar for a while! Very friendly staff and security. The bar had a limited selection...More

We thought the venue was stunning and no problems with not being able to see as the rake was brilliant. Very impressive building, as ever ladies toilets were a bit of a let down, one was blocked when we went and there's never enough anyway.
