Birmingham Repertory Theatre and the Library of Birmingham have today announced a joint conferencing and events venture, Unique Venues Birmingham (UVB). Unique Venues Birmingham is a new commercial venture between the two nationally-renowned venues, which will unite the excellent conferencing and hospitality opportunities offered within the shared building on Centenary Square in the heart of Birmingham.
UVB will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Birmingham Repertory Theatre Ltd, jointly governed by The REP and Birmingham City Council. It will consolidate the existing operations in each venue to provide one unique conferencing and events offering to both corporate and private clients.
Unique Venues Birmingham will offer a range of flexible conferencing and events spaces for those seeking a dramatically different venue for their conference or event. The UVB portfolio includes three theatrical auditoria presenting huge dramatic and creative possibilities, a spectacular book rotunda, and a beautiful roof terrace with stunning panoramic views across the city plus the historic Shakespeare Memorial Room. A range of function suites and meetings rooms, complete with audio-visual technology, are also on offer across the shared building. UVB will create a number of new jobs.
