Since 2015 when Birmingham Scout County became the sponsor for the NSGSO and then subsequently the NSGCB, concerts have been held in prestigious buildings in Birmingham. These have included both the old and the new Conservatoires, the Bramall Hall at Birmingham University, Ruddock Hall, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) Hall and the MAC Theatre. Additionally there have been concerts in external venues of Grand Central Station and the Birmingham Museum and Library. Severn Valley Railway Station also welcome us back every year.
There is more information about past concerts under history.
