4. Advertising Cookies
Town Hall Symphony Hall carries advertising from third parties (the banner advertisements which appear at the top of the page). As one of the largest regional arts charities in the country, we rely on a range of income sources to enable us to continue and expand our work, since ticket sales alone cannot sustain our programme. We host advertising on our website because it generates income which supports this work. To find out more visit our Support Us section, via the link below.

The advertisers set cookies which will be used for online behavioural advertising. They collect information to make advertising more relevant to the user.
