We regularly attend concerts here. The sound quality is the best we have experienced anywhere. You get a great view of the srage from almost every seat. Try eating at Strada before the gig.

Although it's not tiny, it is fairly small, so the Symphony Hall in Birmingham is a great place to go and watch comedians, choirs etc. We've seen some great acts there - plus the seating is comfortable - that's not a comment I could make...More

Symphony Hall puts on concerts for every taste and age group. At Christmas they have wonderful concerts to appeal to Children and the young at heart. There is a plenty of parking nearby and lots of places to eat. We love it.

The stalls at both sides have good views of the stage so should be good for seeing the orchestra
