The Old Fruitmarket

The Old Fruitmarket is a concert hall, part of the City Halls and adjoining the grand hall. It was a functioning market until the 1970s.

It has hosted concerts by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. It has a flexible capacity of 1000-2000 and is used for jazz and traditional music events, and also by the BBC SSO for more experimental contemporary music events.
