Queen Elizabeth Hall

Queen Elizabeth Hall is currently closed for renovations. It is due to reopen in 2018. However, the Roof Garden is open daily in the spring and summer months, and is free to visit.

The building, which is also home the Purcell Rom was opened in March 1967 by Her Majesty the Queen. The auditorium has 917 seats and is host to chamber orchestras, quartets, choirs, dance performances, opera and music theatre.

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!
