Artist's Description

This Town Hall is a Grade 1 listed building in Birmingham, England

It opened in 1834 . It was designed by Joseph Aloysius Hansom, for the performance of music, political speechmaking, public gatherings and the use of the urban community .

The hall is modelled on the Temple of Castor and Pollux in Rome and has a 6,000 Pipe organ installed.

Charles Dickens gave public readings here and Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius were both premiered here.

Popular music has also featured, and in the 1960s and 1970s, headline acts such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan appeared.

The Hall closed in 1996 for a £35 million refurbishment. Lovingly and painstakingly renovated by a dedicated team of conservation and construction professionals has seen the Town Hall brought back to its original glory with its 6,000-pipe organ still in place.
