New Corporate Package scheme and Laurent Perrier Gallery unveiled

Town Hall and Symphony Hall has announced an exciting new corporate membership scheme to enable businesses to take advantage of exceptional concert and entertaining opportunities while supporting the leading UK music organisation’s charitable objectives.

The initiative was announced at the official launch of Symphony Hall’s stylish new Laurent-Perrier Gallery which will be the centrepiece of the new scheme. Corporate package benefits will include top price tickets to Town Hall and Symphony Hall’s extensive range of performances and exclusive access to the most popular shows. Corporate members also enjoy the use of the Laurent-Perrier Gallery and unique Joseph Hansom Suite at Town Hall, with a range of Laurent-Perrier champagnes and canapés provided by partners Amadeus.

Andrew Jowett OBE, Chief Executive, Town Hall & Symphony Hall said, “Corporate Membership is an important new development for Town Hall & Symphony Hall which we believe will represent an attractive proposition to the business community. While executives are networking and entertaining clients, they have the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting the charity’s valuable education and talent development programme which reaches 18,000 people each year and underpinning our artistic programme which brings the best in the world to Birmingham. Corporate Membership adds a new dimension to our existing commercial offers such as private venue hire of our two world-class concert halls for conferences, receptions and banquets.”

Steve Brandwood, Sales Director of Laurent-Perrier UK commented, “Town Hall and Symphony Hall are iconic destinations for the corporate market and we are delighted to open the new Laurent-Perrier Gallery. We are sure that the new corporate membership benefits will be extremely successful.”

Corporate Membership costs from £1,300 + VAT. Further information available from Karen Daw, Head of Development, Town Hall & Symphony Hall 0121 644 5075, email or visit
