Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

2 Sauchiehall Street,
0141 353 8000

The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall describes itself as Scotland's premier music venue.
Sitting in an imposing city centre position, proudly looking down Buchanan Street, it is Glasgow's main classical music venue, but also hosts concerts ranging from classical to folk, world, country, rock and pop. Each year it forms the heart of the world-famous Celtic Connections festival.
Its International Classical Season aims to bring the world's best musicians to the Concert Hall stage and stars have included The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Maxim Vengerov, Cecilia Bartoli, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and many, many more.
Artists who have appeared here as part of national tours include Will Young, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae and BB King.
The hall opened in 1990, when Glasgow was European City of Culture, intended to be "Glasgow's Hall for Glasgow's People". It now hosts 400 concerts and over 1,000 corporate events every year.
It contains a whole range of flexible spaces for all kinds of occasion and the 2,475 seat auditorium has played host to many amazing cultural events.
There is also a cafe which is open on a daily basis, and the space around Donald Dewar's statue at the base of the hall's imposing steps - which are themselves a popular sunny-day lunch spot for Glaswegian workers - is used for street theatre and roadshows.
