O2 Academy Birmingham

Acadamy Music Group


O2 Academy Birmingham has three venues, so it can get busy if they're all in full swing at the same time. O2 Academy Birmingham is the largest and has a raised viewing area on the balcony (up one floor). To get there, we have a lift or stairs with turns. This area has room for up to six wheelchairs and there’s space for seats. All customers who have balcony tickets for the main room are advised in advance, and upon arrival, of our no-standing policy; and our staff are present to enforce this. Please just let our security team know if anyone repeatedly obstructs your sightline from our designated viewing area. O2 Academy2 Birmingham has a dedicated balcony as a viewing area. It’s also on the upper level and can be accessed by using our lift. Or it’s two flights (?) of stairs with turns. There’s room for four wheelchairs and four seats. O2 Academy3 Birmingham is our smallest venue. There’s no specific viewing area; and it’s on our ground level, you go in directly from the main entrance, so please just get in touch if there’s anything we need to be aware of or any support you need from our staff to make sure you have an enjoyable visit.
