The Purcell Room is a small concert hall venue located in London’s Southbank Centre. It can be found within the Queen Elizabeth Hall (QEH) building.

The Purcell Room is the most intimate concert hall venue on site, making it especially suitable for chamber music, literature and spoken word events, mime and solo recitals. It can accommodate only 370 people.

Finding the Purcell Room
A walkway from the Royal Festival Hall terrace gives access to the main foyer of the QEH. The entrance is a horizontal slit in the great concrete bulk of the building. Six pairs of cast aluminium doors give entry to the surprisingly intimate foyer. The Purcell Room is well signed.
