The Holywell Music Room

Initially funded by public subscription, the Holywell Music Room opened in 1748, and now, at over 270 years old, it is the oldest custom built concert hall in Europe. Typically it hosts choral, string, and chamber music, but it is also used for folk music events.

Coronavirus Update

In these difficult times of a coronavirus pandemic, sickness, self-isolation, and social distancing, gigs and social gatherings are not permitted right now. A lot of performances are being rescheduled for later in the year. If you have purchased tickets online and a gig is cancelled or postponed, the ticket agencies should contact you, usually by email, to let you know, and to arrange refunds etc.

To avoid confusion, we are no longer listing any events scheduled before 21st June, and for now you should regard all gigs listed as specualtive. We will continue to list events for later in the year, and hope that this crisis clears up soon and restrictions can be safely relaxed or lifted altogether. In the meantime, please keep yourselves, your friends, and your families safe. Our thoughts are with you. Take care of each other.
