We saw Iain Hunter in the Queen's Hall on Saturday, as part of the Jazz Festival. What a terrific show in a good venue. Just a couple of things that are perhaps to be expected in this type of venue - the seats got quite uncomfortable by the end of the night, and it was very hot with no air... More

This is a really lovely venue. Was a church in it's day and gives a very informal feeling to a concert. So close up to the bands if you choose a seat downstairs. Very good too for people with walking issues as it's not a great distance to toilets, bar etc.

Despite having lived in Edinburgh for more than 30 years this was our first ever gig at the Queens Hall. What a great little venue! We were a little concerned about non reserved seating however we were early enough to get a good seat on the balcony and settled down with a fine glass of wine. The concert was performed... More

This is a really interesting venue, it looks great and is really different to most live music venues - it has a lovely intimate feel when there are gigs on (we saw They Might Be Giants which suited the venue perfectly!). The bar serves proper beer and the staff were all really friendly. Very impressed.

its a good music venue, not a huge place and the views if on the main floor are not that great but the sound quality is pretty good, access is great and the bar has some good choices of beer, a good place so see bands and artists.

Each November hundreds of fiddlers get together here and at the King's hall for one of the major festivals of traditional music in Scotland. Classes, concerts recitals, talks et al. Ideally placed with lots of good B&Bs and eateries locally. Good for both players and non players, it is one of the few venues where audience can mix with artists... More

on a recent trip to Edinburgh festival we attended 3 concerts at this venue. The quality of the artists was excellent and I particularly liked the venue for it's intimate size ( an old church.) Another plus was that if you didn't like the seating you had been allocated you could opt to go and stand upstairs where from the... More

Currently home to the marvellous Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the fantastic programme of morning concerts for the Edinburgh Festival. This former church delivers acoustically but is otherwise looking tired and badly in need of investment.
