About this space

Space virtual tour

With a standard theatre capacity of 400, spread over the balcony and ground floor seating, our Main Hall retains its period features and is internationally renowned for its excellent acoustics.

The Main Hall is famous for hosting the longest run of classical concerts in the UK (which started in 1880 at the Society’s previous site), jazz concerts from the 1930s to the 1960s, a rare UK appearance from Muddy Waters and gigs by Crass and The Cure in 1970s, as well as many other concerts, including James Blake and La Roux, and events of all kinds during its 90 year history.

With our four HD cameras, we can record or livestream your event to YouTube (or another platform).

As well as concerts and performances, we can also host Hybrid physical/virtual events such as conferences (with in-person and remote delegates) and talks with Q&As.

The room is perfect for meetings, conferences, launches, receptions, exams, recordings, rehearsals, dances, as well as exhibitions, concerts and talks or any functions requiring a large stage and floor area.
