West Road Concert Hall

Auditorium

The Concert Hall forms part of the University of Cambridge's Music Faculty. The Concert Hall auditorium seats up to 499 people in an air-conditioned, raked, theatre-style layout.

Six breakout rooms with capacities from 40 to 100 in a variety of layouts are complemented by the large, bright foyer (340sq.m), ideal for exhibitions, registration, networking and catering. For larger events, further breakout and exhibition space may be possible via an adjacent marquee. All rooms are on the ground floor and therefore easily accessible by all users.

Catering can be provided through our contracted external caterers, Langley Larder, whether you're looking for a full day of catering for conference clients or a drinks and canapes reception at an evening event.

Working alongside neighbouring Colleges for accommodation, West Road Concert Hall offers attractive and functional conference facilities in the centre of one of the most historic and beautiful of England’s cities.

Whether you are looking for a full day of catering for conference clients, or a wine and drinks reception at your concert, West Road Concert Hall can provide what you need. The contracted external caterers are Langley Larder, though we are still able to offer simple receptions through the use of our own internal bar.
