Great small venue It was my first visit to Symphony Hall and I wasn’t disappointed. Very sophisticated, organised and great acoustics.

Visited here so many times. Just love the ambience and facilities. Always a fantastic experience. Plenty of places to eat. Staff helpful. Always on hand to advice. We changed seats at one concert and it was no trouble

It is a great Symphony hall ! Excellent acoustics, beautiful decoration (not conventional), wide orchestra. We have attended Dvorak-Bartok-Strauss concert but it seems that the entire yearly program is most attractive, with great venues and the participation of contemprary "stars" of classical music.

What an amazing performance. I absolutely love this venue. The show itself was fantastic . Belinda Davis did Whitney proud and I can recommend it. If it comes to Birmingham again I would definitely book again

We have attended many concerts here and it is a very special venue. We attended the Don McLean concert last night and it was excellent.

I attended a concert there, the hall is not only impressive but also has great acoustics. Also, you can easily see everything from wherever you sit. Very enjoyable place.

Originally postponed from a few weeks previous at the Birmingham Town Hall because of snow, the re arranged gig (on a glorious sunny day) at the Symphony hall was just a pure delight. Even the afternoon 'reccy', of the venue was a pleasure, members of...More

Went to see Simon Rattle and LSO. Sat right at the top (level 7). The horns sounded clear as day but the trumpets and trombones were lost. The strings didn't really come through the texture either. I think if Simon Rattle was sat next to...More

A little difficult to find as the building is not listed as symphony hall from outside! Once inside- comfy seats 💺, great acoustics, friendly staff. Queuing for ladies loo as usual as I forgot my radar key 🔑.

No, the seats in the stalls are all at the same level from what I can remember. I’m sure the box office will be able to help if you call them

No There are several car parks. A good tip is to park at top of broad street in the cinema complex and walk down. It’s a very reasonably priced car park and you don’t get any queue when leaving
