The Concert Room

Breathtakingly beautiful, the circular Concert Room, decorated in soft tones of cream and gold, can accommodate up to 500 guests and offers a unique space for theatre style events.

An opulent crystal chandelier, walls lined with Goddess-like statues and angelic cherubs greet your delegates whilst Ravenhead glass mirrors create stunning reflections around the featured stage, a perfect space for a guest speaker or performance to take place.

Charles Dickens gave many readings on the stage and declared it to be ‘the most perfect room in the world.’ Originally designed to accommodate an orchestra, it has excellent acoustics with Artists such as opera singer Lesley Garret, comedians Romesh Ranganathan and Paul Chowdry, all having performed here.

The Concert Room was refurbished in 2006, and is now the crowning glory of the Hall; it is also available as a private hire to Promoters, Agents and performers for their own ticketed events.
