Town Hall, Birmingham will re-open on Thursday 4 October 2007 with a two-week festival of events on the theme Celebrating the Past, Pioneering the Future. Tickets are on sale now.
Town Hall is in the final stages of a £35m renovation, funded by Birmingham City Council (£18.3m), Heritage Lottery Fund (£13.7m) and European Regional Development Fund (£3m).
The major construction phase is complete and work has started on re-commissioning the Organ and testing all the in-house facilities and systems.
Acclaimed at its opening in 1834 as the finest music hall in the country, this Grade 1 listed landmark has been lovingly and painstakingly renovated by a dedicated team of conservation and construction professionals. Since that time, its imposing neo-classical design has dominated the City centre’s Victoria and Chamberlain Squares.
