Great venue for a concert

Visited Symphony Hall 25-2-2017 for Mike & The Mechanics. Great venue; took me 5 minutes to get used to the sound but after that it was marvellous.

We went to see Brit Floyd here. The sound was fantastic, the acoustics resounding, the light show amazing. The seats are very uncomfortable, but the venue is great, so forgivable. Staff are helpful and friendly

Excellent venue. Very comfortable, spacious seats. We we sat in the middle of the stalls and had a fantastic view. It is small enough to get a good view from any seat. Acoustics were great. On another note, the concert was AMAZING!

We recently visited the Symphony Hall for the first time to watch and listen to the BritFloyd. I was quite taken back how great the facilities and the main Hall were. I will certainly be looking to visit here again.

A first class, world class, comfortable music venue. As to a review of the performance.....book music to your taste, it will be great! ( The Symphony Hall possesses a brilliant modern concert pipe organ, and if you go to a performance with the Organ in it you will be in for a real treat!) We have yet to find seats... More

Love symphony hall for its character and seating. We often go and we find it the perfect venue. Had drinks before in the bar and at half time interval. Super concert, lovely evening.

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. The shows are all very good value, almost always much cheaper than other theatres in Birmingham. The Symphony Orchestra 'Friday night classics' are a wonderful introduction to Symphony Orchestras,...
