A cultural icon
Birmingham City University is home to Royal Birmingham Conservatoire – its renowned music and acting school.
Housed in a purpose built performing arts building the Conservatoire boasts five public performance spaces including a 500-seater concert hall, a 150 seater recital hall, and a 100-seater organ studio.
Royal Birmingham Conservatoire regularly hosts public performances allowing those living, working and studying in the West Midlands to access its facilities to watch concerts, recitals and other performances.
Situated on the City Centre Campus, the Conservatoire has been part of Birmingham City University since 1970.
Training and educating musicians and actors in an array of disciplines, the Conservatoire’s history in the city dates back to 1859.
Researchers at the Conservatoire are also working to make classical music more accessible and continue the growth of music study among all age groups.
