Concert Venue Hire London
Our popular Great Hall is a spectacular backdrop for concerts of all styles and genres, from contemporary rock and pop to orchestral scores and choral performances. Some of our most notable past performers include Robbie Williams, Belle and Sebastian, Kanye West and Madness.
Best known for regularly hosting the BBC New Year’s Eve concert, the Great Hall is an ideal concert venue to hire in London with capacity for up to 2,400 and a one-of-a-kind stage that creates a unique, personal connection between performers and their audience.
Our stunning Lecture Hall is also an excellent choice for concerts that need a more intimate space. Its built-in stage, blackout facilities and high ceilings create just the atmosphere you’d expect from such an iconic London concert venue.
Exceptional Concert AV Facilities
To ensure Central Hall Westminster remains one of the most outstanding concert venues to hire in London, we have made significant investments into its facilities together with our in-house AV partner White Light. The Great Hall in particular has seen several upgrades, guaranteeing the space and its facilities provide a world-class concert experience to audience and performer alike.
Permanent features of the venue include an original Arthur Hill and Son 4731-pipe organ, an adaptable stage (extending up to 60 ft) and a large backstage area with two stage-access points. Many more additional features can be added to create a bespoke AV solution for your concert event.
Just a few of the state-of-the-art AV facilities available within the Great Hall include:
- A 20” edgeless floating screen, fed by two 15,000 lumen Christie Projectors
- A completely versatile in-house lighting rig, combining generic LED fixtures, moving head fixtures and LED washes.
- An extensive control and distribution system for routing video audio signals throughout the Hall.
- Impressive rigging capabilities with eight 800kg SWL hoists.
- Leading on from our Grand Staircase, the Grand Hall foyers can be set up to be used as cloakroom facilities too.
