Our goal is for as many people as possible to compliment you on hosting a wonderful event.

Give Your Event Character

When we start working on an event, one of the most common comments is: ‘We don’t want this to feel like just another awards ceremony (or gala dinner or corporate reception).’

And that’s exactly how Town Hall and Symphony Hall offer you something different.

What better way to celebrate your business than by being in the heart of Birmingham’s historic civic life? Or to recognise excellence in your industry than by being in a space used by Sir Simon Rattle, Bruce Springsteen, Joshua Bell and Billy Connolly?

You will have exclusive use of the venue for your event, including the foyers and bar areas. Town Hall is perfect for events of up to 350 guests. Symphony Hall is ideal for up to 600.

Our events, catering and technical teams will work with you to ensure everything runs smoothly and your guests enjoy a memorable occasion.

Town Hall

With an illustrious 180-year history, your guests will join the ranks of prestigious visitors including Charles Dickens, Joseph Chamberlain, The Rolling Stones and David Bowie.

This Grade 1-listed building has stunning period architecture and a breathtaking main hall, providing a captivating backdrop for your event.

It accommodates 80 to 350 guests for drinks, dinner and dancing. You and your guests will enjoy the superior acoustics and have use of the foyers and bar areas for photographs and socialising.

Symphony Hall

With its distinctive Art Deco inspired main hall and world-class acoustics, Symphony Hall is a striking backdrop for your banquet, awards ceremony, gala dinner or celebration.

It seats between 200 and 600 guests using our innovative Next Stage service. We tailor the auditorium to meet your needs by using over 300 stage decks to create a floating tiered floor.

‘Part of a recent business trip to Birmingham included a dinner for around 600 at the fabulous venue that is Symphony Hall. Catering for a large crowd is always difficult, but it was excellent – I was really impressed.’
