GLASGOW ROYAL CONCERT HALL
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall is a multi-purpose concert and arts venue located in the heart of the city centre. Dominating the top of Buchanan Street, on the corner of Sauchiehall Street, the concert hall is situated next to Buchanan Galleries (home to some of the best shopping in Glasgow).
The Glasgow concert venue is well used by local and visiting musicians alike. Here audiences can hear performances which range across genres, from classical, opera, jazz, pop and rock. Many international orchestras have performed here, including the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and New York City’s Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra also performs regularly at the venue. Glasgow Royal Concert Hall has two premier sister venues, the City Halls and the Old Fruit Market, which it collaborates closely with.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall seats up to 2475 people in the main auditorium. This is the largest hall in the venue. In addition to this, there are many smaller halls ranging from a capacity of 40 to 300 seats, all with distinct personalities of their own. For example, the Green Room has a spectacular view overlooking the city’s Buchanan Street. Whilst taking in a performance, relax in one of the concert hall bars, or dine in Café Encore or the restaurant. Souvenirs of your visit can be purchased in the gift shop.
