Birmingham Town Hall

Birmingham Town Hall is a Grade I listed building which is a concert hall and venue for popular assemblies. 

It was opened in 1834 and is situated in Victoria Square and Chamberlain Square. Birmingham Town Hall was also the first significant work of the 19th-century revival of Roman architecture. 

The Town Hall was built in 1834 by Joseph Hansom. When installed the Town Hall's 6,000-pipe William Hill concert organ was largest and most technologically advanced in the world. Between 1784 - 1912 the city hosted the Birmingham Triennial Music Festival and the Town Hall was built to cope with its popularity with greats like Felix Mendelssohn and Edward Elgar performing there.

The Town Hall closed in 1996 for refurbishment works. And renovation works were completed by 2007. It was reopened in 2008 by The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
