Purcell Room

The Purcell Room reopened in April 2018 following almost three years of refurbishment. With new improved facilities and acoustics, this intimate wood-panelled auditorium provides a platform for music and performance events, a variety of talks and debates, plus readings of classical and modern literature.

The world-renowned venue has played host to some of the biggest names of the 20th century and beyond, including David Bowie, Daniel Barenboim, Marianne Faithfull and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.
