Providing the outstanding University of Birmingham Music Department with a permanent home at the heart of the University, with state-of-the-art teaching, research, performance and rehearsal facilities appropriate to its reputation, this £16 million facility benefits everyone involved in the University’s elite and inclusive music-making and performance as well as being open for use by our regional communities.

The 450-seat auditorium is the most flexible performance space at a UK university – suitable for performances from solo voice, early music, to a full symphony orchestra. When not used for music, it is a high profile location for drama and dance performance and for prestigious lectures.
