venue

Queen Elizabeth Hall

Queen Elizabeth Hall is a leading London venue showcasing world-class talks, gigs, dance, performance and classical music. 

As well as a 900 capacity auditorium, the foyer plays host to the most hotly-tipped live music with futuretense and Concrete Lates – our late-night electronic music series in partnership with Boiler Room.

The building is also home to the smaller, intimate Purcell Room.

Queen Elizabeth Hall reopened in April 2018 following almost three years of renovations with world class, environmentally-improved new facilities for audiences and artists.

The design led by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios), focused on refurbishing the auditoria, foyer and artists’ back of house facilities. Improved access, ventilation and lighting systems, and new production infrastructure enhance the experience for audience and performers alike. New leather upholstery revitalises the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room’s distinctive and comfortable seating.

The building was originally opened in March 1967 by Her Majesty the Queen and this historic restoration has been made possible through generous support from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, thanks to National Lottery players, and through Southbank Centre friends, trusts and foundations supporting the Let The Light In campaign.
