What a beautiful place. Loved the old time feel of this theatre. Great acoustics too. I can’t believe I’ve never been here till now. A must visit while in Birmingham!

Attended a concert of a local musical group, Three on A String, December 2017. The venue is beautifully restored to its 1920s grandeur. Does not seem to be a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are excellent.
