Town Hall & Symphony Hall believe that music has the power to transform and change lives, to entertain and uplift, to create shared experiences and to educate. We connect people to music through a dynamic and varied concert and education programme at our two world-renowned concert halls - managed jointly by the registered charity Performances Birmingham Limited - and in the wider community.www.thsh.co.uk/
The intimate Recital Hall has a variable acoustic and is a flexible space with a floor-level stage area. A bleacher seating rake of 146 capacity can be extended for concert set-up, or fully retracted underneath a small technical balcony for other seating and event set-ups including cabaret and theatre style.
As with our larger Bradshaw Hall, attention has been paid to every detail in the design of the hall to optimise the experience of both audiences and performers - from the acoustics to the colour scheme of the interior fit-out and from performance lighting to technical capabilities.
