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.

We have a recently updated PA system providing top quality sound and a new lighting grid which carries ETC PARNels, Source 4s, controlled with a Zero 88 Fat Frog board and extras available as part of your hire. Download full specs below.

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)
