I wouldn't describe myself as a music lover but following a visit here with my Dad (who is a classical music fanatic), I have visited many more times with my husband.

We booked to see a Christmas carols concert and was not disappointed. Excellent seating, superb sound and excellent staff. The prices for refreshments are very good and the whole place is spotlessly clean. A perfect place to listen to music it will blow you away.

We booked this as a last minute thing to do on a trip to Birmingham. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Was a first for us and would go back! We sat on level 4 circle and the tickets said restricted view but I felt they were the best seats with a great view!
