Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

At the junction of the two shopping streets, Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street, you find the city’s gem of music venues, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Whether you’re a true Glaswegian, or just visiting the city, this is the place to go if you appreciate good music.

More Than Music
Regardless of what you like, the chance is that you will find something on their program which appeals to you. With its wide range of music you can enjoy everything from country, pop or rock to classical and folk. The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall is also the home of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the main venue for Celtic Connections. The last mentioned is a festival in Glasgow said to be the world’s largest winter music festival.

The concert hall is however not used only for music. In 2007, it staged the World Irish Dancing Championships and it is also often used for graduation ceremonies. Annually the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall plays host to 400 concerts and over 1,000 corporate events.

The Intimate Concert Hall
When the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall opened it was seen as a symbol of the regeneration of the city Built for the Glasgow’s 1990 City of Culture status, it was intended to replace the St. Andrews Hall which was destroyed by fire in 1962. For 30 years Glasgow was without any dedicated concert hall.

However, what really makes the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall special is its intimate atmosphere. The seating layout makes the venue feel more like a theatre than a concert hall, and it is significantly larger than it appears. Several of its visitors are surprised over how many spectators the hall actually takes. The largest auditorium is able to seat 2,475 people. Together with the layout, the acoustics also make sure that no matter where you are seated, you will have a great experience.
