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.
This gallery looks at the venues and the names that have been part of the city's musical heritage. From smokey clubs where you could see local bands to the theatres and arenas where international stars grace the stage.
Birmingham has a proud history of hosting live music, which continues to this day. Its venues have staged legends like Black Sabbath and UB40. Find out more about the venues and the bands that played in them.
