Watch Symphony Hall's Transformation

Filmed over several hours, this video captures the amazing hard work that is put into creating The Next Stage in Birmingham's Symphony Hall.



Birmingham’s world famous Symphony Hall is now offering ‘The Next Stage’ project, the chance to transform the renowned concert hall into a stunning new space for the international conference, corporate and events market.

Combining world-class acoustics and expert event delivery with custom-built tiered staging covering the Stalls seating, designed by industry leaders Staging Services Ltd, the venue can now offer a banqueting capacity of 620.

The innovative solution uses over 300 stage decks to create a floating tiered floor providing a 600sqm floor area. A bespoke balustrade system using the latest LED technology has been developed especially for the project and will be used to bring cabaret style events and conferences to life.

Anita Bhalla OBE, Chair, Performances Birmingham Limited (the leading music charity which manages Town Hall and Symphony Hall) said:

“The Next Stage marks a hugely significant step in Symphony Hall’s history, opening up the hall in response to demand from the corporate and events industry, and providing a valuable new income stream for the charity in these financially challenging times.

“For CSR-conscious organisations, holding an event at Symphony Hall supports the charity’s valuable education and talent development programme which reaches 18,000 people each year and underpins our artistic programme which brings the best in the world to Birmingham.”

The video below quickly shows the lengthy process of building The Next Stage for an event, with amazing results.



The Town Hall and Symphony Hall team already has an excellent track record of conference and events delivery. Symphony Hall has provided the stage for the Conservative Party Conference, and clients have included The Open University, Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals and Peter Jones Academy. Meanwhile, the Grade 1 listed Town Hall has provided an exceptional backdrop for conferences, events, banquets and weddings for the past seven years.
