The Library of Birmingham

The Library of Birmingham is a very special venue for meetings, conferences, training courses, gala dinners, banquets and wedding/civil ceremonies in the heart of Birmingham City Centre, with excellent service and catering to match.

Shortlisted for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize and voted Britain’s favourite new building , the Library of Birmingham also offers truly unique settings for special occasions - such as the stunning Book Rotunda, historic Shakespeare Memorial Room and enchanting garden terrace with city views.

Our meeting room suite on level 1 of the library offers three high-spec, flexible meeting rooms, including rooms suitable for up to 80 delegates (theatre style). All the meeting rooms benefit from natural daylight and views over Centenary Square.

Our Studio Theatre is an adaptable, high spec space ideal for conferences, seminars and corporate events, breakfast briefings etc. It can seat up to 292 theatre style, 150 cabaret style or be configured as an empty space.

The Shakespeare Memorial Room is a historic room which was created for the city’s Victorian library by John Henry Chamberlain in 1882. Following restoration by local craftsmen, it now commands an impressive position at the very top of the Library of Birmingham.

We also have a beautiful outdoor garden terrace which overlooks Centenary Square and is a perfect relaxed location for summer drinks receptions, celebrations and networking events.
