The Queen's Hall has been at the heart of the Edinburgh music scene since way back in 1979, when it was converted from a chapel into a concert hall after a public appeal. The natural acoustics make it beautifully suited to a vast range of music – it is both home to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and has hosted some of the most memorable rock gigs in recent years (including Frightened Rabbit during Edge Festival 2010). It is also a key host to the Fringe, the Jazz and Blues Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival.
Capacity is 900 for a standing gig, although it also caters to far smaller numbers with audiences seated in rows, or around tables and excellent disabled facilities. A spacious bar complete with extra balcony space is open to keep you hydrated pre and during concert. With over 200 events a year, there is something here to suit most tastes.
