St Cecilia's Hall

St Cecilia's Hall is the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland, with a capacity of 200. The main hall boasts a unique oval shape with a small raised stage at one end, constructed at the end of the 17th century. Below the concert hall is the smaller Laigh Room, perfect as a break out space, rehearsal area, or bar. St Cecilia's Hall can be rented for concerts, performances and rehearsals.

The Hall is also home to the University of Edinburgh's Museum of Musical Instruments, which contains a huge range of music-making tools from a 1560 virginal by Lodewyk Theewes to a 1990s Fender Stratocaster guitar.

The Hall re-opened to the public in May 2017 after a major renovation.
