The Queen's Hall is a 900-capacity music venue, situated on Clerk Street in Edinburgh, Scotland. Originally built in 1823 as Hope Park Chapel, it was converted to its current role in 1979 and was formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 6 July 1979.

The Queen's Hall offers a wide range of events to tempt you all year round - classical, jazz, blues, pop, rock, world, folk and comedy.

During the summer months we host events for the Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.

We can accommodate everyone from a string quartet or a full symphony orchestra, to a full touring rock band and still maintain the excellent natural acoustics of the Hall.

With our well-stocked bar open before and during all concerts, we'll quench your thirst and set you up for the great performance ahead.
