Purcell Room

The Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall is closed while we undertake our vital restoration of Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery. It is due to reopen in 2018.

The venue normally hosts a packed Talks & Debates programme as well as music and performance events. 

While it's closed you can still check out the striking, Grade 2-listed sculpture Zemran on it's outdoor terrace, which was created by artist William Pye.

Find out about our Let the Light In project to renovate this amazing building and  bring both auditoria up to world-class standards so that we can continue to work with the finest established and emerging artists from around the world. You can also show your support!
