Birmingham Music Venues

Birmingham has had its fair share of music venues over the years. Many, unfortunately, have now gone - some demolished to make way for housing and hotels or other developments. Others have simply stopped live music. This feature looks back at some of these venues but also features those where you can still see local acts as well as the big stars.
