Amazed by the layout of this hall. Would definitely return and recommend looking at the restricted view seats because some of them can still be very good. They could have more bar staff on in busy periods though (or more tills)

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.

To be honest I don’t think there would be a bad seat. The way the seats are positioned you can see the stage. We were opposite the stage and could see everything. I hope this helps - enjoy
