A 900-seat concert hall, this is one of Edinburgh's leading live music venues.

One of the main venues for a variety of Edinburgh's festivals throughout the year, on account of the relatively large size of its auditorium/concert hall, but also the intimacy of the venue.

During the year, carries an eclectic programme of around 200 live music performances - varying from the resident Scottish Chamber Orchestra to touring choirs from South African townships, from ceilidhs to club nights.

The Queen's Hall is a converted church on Edinburgh's Southside, formerly called the Hope Chapel of Ease when it was built in 1823.

The Hall was converted in 1979 and opened by the Queen.
