The Purcell Room is closed for restoration and is due to reopen in Spring 2018. The venue normally hosts music and performance events as well as a diverse talks & debates programme. 

Find out below 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!

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.
