Anthony Peers – The Story of Birmingham Town Hall

Constructed with funds raised by a public rate, Birmingham Town Hall is Britain’s first truly civic building and serves as an emblem for the town and its people.

Upon its completion in 1834, The Preston Chronicle described it as ‘The Pride of Birmingham and an Ornament to England’. This impressive neoclassical temple was Britain’s first genuinely civic building, designed to house the country’s first great public concert hall.

Anthony Peers, an architectural historian, trained in building conservation, oversaw its repair, alteration and remodelling. He unveils discoveries aplenty about the building's origins, its design, uses, evolution and recent transformation.
