Cadogan Hall
Venue says Get your Xmas celebrations off to a brilliant start with a concert of classical favourites with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, 4 Dec

Built a century ago as a Christian Science church, this austere building was transformed into a light and airy auditorium in 2004, with an impressive expansion in 2014 to up the capacity. It's hard to imagine how the renovations could have been bettered: the classic hall is comfortable and the acoustics excellent, providing the perfect setting for concerts ranging from country to classical music (the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are residents here).

Several of the BBC Proms concerts are held in Cadogan Hall every summer in conjunction with the Royal Albert Hall, and every November the London Jazz Festival sets up shop here. The early-twentieth-century interior is also a draw, as is the charming Oakley Room bar where drinks are served at every available juncture.

If you have never been to a concert at our beautiful venue you are missing out! Have a look at our website to see the huge variety of concerts and events: from beautiful choral music to huge international orchestras, folk and world gigs to jazz big bands. Have a drink at our bars, while admiring the building's unique stained glass windows. We're a 2-minute stroll from Sloane Square tube station and a 10-minute walk from Victoria so really easy to find too.

Absolutely stunning venue. I love it here. I've been many times to see the London Gay Men's Chorus who perform here twice a year - a summer show and christmas show. The building is stunning and acoustics fantastic. we usually sit centre around row L-M and its fabulous. The bar is also pretty reasonable too - drinks can be ordered at the interval and left on the side which is great as the actually bar itself is quite small and is often very busy.

I wondered why the ticket prices were the same wherever  you chose to sit in the auditorium but as I discovered, the acoustics and sight lines here are the best I've experienced in London.  Wherever you sit, you can see and hear perfectly.  Large bar area and cafe (sandwiches, cakes), toilets at most levels and mobility friendly. An extremely comfortable place to watch and listen to your chosen artists.


This is such a great venue. Achoustics are first class. Auditorium is very comfortable. Beautifully equipped for a great concert. Local restaurants make it an excellent night out.


Cadogan Hall is a fabulous venue both for the performer and the audience with an amazing repertoire; the acoustics are great, it is comfortable with great sight lines (and a great bar!) in top-notch surroundings in a lovely part of London: what more could a concert-giver or concert-goer wish for?


Beautiful building; a lovely venue for chamber concerts - love the lunch-time Proms !
Why aren't the café & bar open more ?


Fantastic venue, large but intimate feeling, lovely staff, and a huge variety of different events.

This is a lovely little venue that is all about the sound of the music. The acoustics are fantastic regardless of where you sit. The stalls have some of the comfiest seats in London and while the seats in the gallery are more pew-style, they offer ample space. The back of the hall seems to have the most rounded sound, either in the stalls or the gallery. Now all it needs is a broader musical programme.

This spot is a very good, yet little known classical music venue. It offers amazing productions of the royal philharmonic orchestra and many one offs by very good musical talent. It is very well located. The venue itself where the music is played in nice and most seat provide good viewing of the stage. 


It is the hall in which you have drinks that really lets this venue down- it feels very school hall-esque. However the soroudning mean there are many options for pre and after performance drinks (and dinner) so you only need to be there for the interval.
