Birmingham’s most iconic historic building
Originally constructed in 1834 Birmingham Town Hall resides at the centre of the city playing host to a plethora of civic and cultural activity. Boasting over 180 years of heritage the venue has held an assortment of concerts from rock to classical and pop to comedy. Concerts hosted include; David Bowie, Led Zepplin, Caitlin Moran and more. In addition to the vast array of concerts held the hall also acts as a stage for prestigious corporate events, University award ceremonies and graduations and political debate and addresses.
Birmingham Town Hall is recognised as one of the most impressive examples of Roman Revival civic architecture, the Grade I listed building designed by Joseph Aloyisus Hansom, takes inspiration from the Roman Temple of Castor and Pollux with intricate facades and grand vaulted ceilings. Much-admired as one of the pinnacle examples of Victorian architecture in Birmingham, and one of exceptional interest which helped it earn its Grade I listing – only 2.5% of listed buildings qualifying for this category, the building has a classical look with its portico raised on 40 Corinthian columns coated with Anglesey marble.
