Historic hall

Originally opened in 1763, St Cecilia’s Hall is the oldest purpose-built concert hall in Scotland.

This is the first St Andrew’s Day concert to be held in the Georgian Hall since it closed for a £6.5m refurbishment in 2014.

The Sypert Concert Room’s distinct oval shape makes it an ideal setting for an evening of Scottish music.
