Venue Tours

Come and discover our world class buildings by joining a venue tour.

Public Tours – Individuals (or small groups)

Places on our monthly public tours of Town Hall and Symphony Hall can be booked through our Box Office. You’ll be given an introduction to the building and taken on a backstage tour.

More information on public tours can be found here.

Group Tours

For larger groups (including schools, colleges and universities) why not book a private group tour? All tours include an overview of the building, its history, performances and backstage areas. We are currently offering the below:

Technical Tour (Symphony Hall only)
Our technicians will show you around the Symphony Hall auditorium and backstage area. Learn about the hall’s world-famous acoustics and technical capability, see demonstrations and gain exclusive access to our lighting and sound controls.

Tour & Tunes (either venue)
Join us for an extended tour of Town Hall or Symphony Hall which will include exclusive access to behind-the-scenes areas and an in-depth exploration of the organ. Subject to their availability, our organ scholar can be on hand to demonstrate how the organ works and play musical excerpts.

All group tours last for approximately 90 minutes and are charged at a fixed price of £200.00 (plus VAT) per tour for up to 40 people (school and education groups receive a 25% discount).

To discuss your requirements and book a group tour please contact education@thsh.co.uk or 0121 644 5185

Please note: Due to the popularity of our venue tours and the nature of our venues as busy working concert halls, flexibility when booking is appreciated.
