Kings Place Concert Hall

There are many significant aspects to the Kings Place development in King's Cross, but perhaps the most important is the new public concert hall, the first to be built in central London since the completion of the Barbican in 1982. The hall holds 420 people with 300 seats provided in the gently raked stalls and a further 120 seats around the upper gallery. With its elegant interior and state-of-the-art acoustic performance, it is intimate yet large enough to accommodate a small orchestra.
