It is a welcoming, 300-seater venue with a brilliant acoustic. It is home to Birmingham Contemporary Music Group’s office, its learning programme and its concert season which also includes concerts by BEAST.
BCMG’s sister organisation, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, also has its offices here and uses the hall as a rehearsal space and concert venue for chamber works.
