Plan your visit to Town Hall or Symphony Hall

As public buildings, welcoming over 450,000 members of the public for performances each year at Town Hall and Symphony Hall, we are committed to ensure your safety whenever you visit, and to minimise the possibility of a terrorist attack. This commitment to safety, of course, extends to the safety of our staff and visiting artists.

We are continually reviewing all of our security procedures. We employ both our own in-house security team and private security agencies to aid this commitment. We are in regular contact with emergency services to ensure we are ready to deal with any unusual events anywhere in the city. We share information with related city-centre networks about security advice, procedures and training.  THSH have comprehensive and integrated covert security measures in place including tailored venue search operations and strategically placed security personnel.   

We will always try to inform patrons in advance of any changes to our planned programme through local media, via our online channels and through our Box Office team.

Whilst no threat can be completely removed, we believe our processes are strong. Every member of the audience at every performance can assist us by being vigilant and reporting to any member of staff anything that may appear suspicious inside or outside our building. We thank you for your understanding.
