We were delighted to launch the new Town Hall/Symphony Hall Website this morning.
Some of the bright young things in our office are too young to remember Birmingham’s Town Hall as a functional venue, but following a painstaking restoration it re-opens in October as a more intimate sister-venue to the world-renowned Symphony Hall.
Our brief, put crudely, was to ensure maximum bums on seats at both venues and with that in mind we focused on events and tickets. The site remembers the kind of events you’ve looked at in the past and starts to focus the home page towards your tastes. There’s always room for something different though.
We also found time for a few Web 2.0 niceties so there’s plenty of RSS, tagging and iCal stuff going on too.
See you at the opening festival!
