St Nicolas' Church

Kings Norton

A Warm Acoustic in a Warm Building


St Nicolas' Church is once again becoming a regular concert venue. Kings Norton's largest building with access for all is experiencing a renewal of the ancient heritage of performance in the nave.

We are blessed with "a warm acoustic ... and a warm building", (the Birmingham Post’s Christopher Morley). Various ensembles and their audiences have found that St Nicolas' offers just the right kind of responsive space for very different performances.

Quartets, small classical period orchestras, string ensembles and smaller symphony orchestras have all taken the stage along with choirs and solo recitalists.

To the warmth of the building we add an experienced warmth of welcome, a range of refreshments and other facilities.

St Nicolas' has hosted performances by the cellist Richard Tunnicliffe, the Le Page Ensemble, the Eroica Camerata, Birmingham University Music Society, Birmingham University Symphony Orchestra, Bournville Young Singers and Birmingham Icknield Male Voice Choir.


The Eroica Camerata brought us most of Beethoven's Symphonies in 2015 and are starting 2016 with a concert of Schubert’s 8th and 9th Symphonies on Jan 23rd at 7.30 p.m.
