Great concert venue

Wonderful concert tonight with Alison Balsom. Good friendly bar staff and seats with more leg room than most venues.

What an amazing building! So many Roman huge columns with elaborate coronas! It certainly lyrics towers over Victoria Square and at night it is light up beautifully. A must see.

The building is quite similar to many others found throughout Europe (i.e. Brussels Bourse etc.) so just for the architecture it's hardly worth the detour. But visitors are likely to pass it anyway on route to other landmarks and attractions.

Well refurbished with tasteful elegance, this venue is suitable for a range of entertainment from solo acts to full orchestras. Very enjoyable and the best leg room seats I ve experienced.

Have been here many times to see bands, the latest being Wilco Johnson. Excellent seating with plenty of leg room and reasonable views of the stage from all areas. Bar is a little plain and beer choice limited, but hey ho! Cloakroom attendants pleasant enough as are bar staff. Worth considering if you want to see an artist here. Thumbs... More

Our second visit here was to see Nina Conti. The hall is narrow and tall and the acoustics are awful. Seating is tight and general access poor. Far better venues in Birmingham.

First time to attend a comedy night at this venue. Drinks were overpriced and the bar area was small and tired. Seats were in the stalls but it was extremely draughty with most people wearing their coats! Miles Jupp was good and entertained with his humour and stories.
