The Queen's Hall is beloved by musicians and audiences alike for its intimate feel and fantastic acoustics. Many promoters return to us time and time again.

Classical recitals, traditional music, rock and pop gigs, choral concerts, comedy, spoken word... we host it all.

Our spacious auditorium can accommodate a maximum of 900 people standing and up to 800 seated dependent on layout and sightlines.  

We can offer three different layouts:

  • Cabaret-style tables
  • Standing
  • Formal seating for classical concerts (the short video below shows this layout in use with the pianist Yundi during the 2011 Edinburgh International Festival)

If you are interested in discussing hire of The Queen's Hall, please contact Mark Wheelwright, Finance & Commercial Manager:

We also sell tickets for events at other venues in and around Edinburgh. If you're interested in this service please reach out to Peter Horne, Box Office Manager:

"The Queen's Hall has lovely acoustics. We've always had exquisite sound there - and it's important to give a shout-out to the sound engineering staff because great sound doesn't just happen by itself."

(Gretchen Peters)

"There are very few venues in the UK as good as The Queen’s Hall… a lot of new venues just don’t have the same atmosphere…"

(Donald Shaw, Former Artistic Director, Celtic Connections and founding member Capercaillie)

"The Queen’s Hall is one of the most magical places I’ve ever performed. In a world that is filled with franchises and cookie-cutter repetition, the history and vibe of a place like The Queen’s Hall is a rare treasure…

(Beth Nielsen Chapman)
