From recurring masters, including the London Symphony Orchestra to pop, jazz concerts and an exclusive performance by folk artist Laura Marling – the venue is a preferred choice as a result of it's intimate atmosphere despite the impressive capacity of over 2,000.

The beautiful architecture, impressive domed ceiling and great organ with over 4,600 pipes give your concert a spectacular backdrop.

A recent £1million redevelopment project in the Great Hall saw the latest AV and sound equipment installed.

The latest concerts include:

  • Andrew Lloyd Webber (1968)
  • Kanye West, American hip-hop artist/ producer (2007)
  • Sigor Ross performed here and sold out in 20 minutes (2008)
  • World Premier of the Melkonian Water Symphony (2011)
  • Laura Marling, Best Female Solo Artist at the Brit Awards (2011)
  • Bryan Ferry at the Laureus World Sports Awards (2012)
  • The Titanic Requiem with Robin Gibb (2012)
  • Sennheiser live in concert (2015)

including regular performances by the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and many others.



Already in the early years Central Hall became a celebrated concert venue which saw England's greatest composer Sir Edward Elgar conducting here.

On a slightly less lofty level, the first public performance of the original version of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew-Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rice. His connection to the Great Hall was his father, Dr William Lloyd Webber, director of music and organist at Methodist Central Hall for many years.

 

@CentralHall Welcome! Events industry margins are usually very healthy so it's heartening to see a London venue paying staff fairly.
