LIVE in the King's Hall

Organised by the International Centre for Music Studies, the LIVE in the King's Hall Lunchtime Concerts and student concerts take place every Thursday and are free to staff, students, and members of the public.

Lunchtime and Student Concerts

The lunchtime concerts start promptly at 1.10pm and last around 50 minutes; the student concerts start at 4pm and last around an hour.

They both take place in the King's Hall, Armstrong Building, opposite the Royal Victoria Infirmary on Queen Victoria Road.

The free Lunchtime concerts are made possible largely due to contributions made by members of the audience. To help support the King's Hall lunchtime concerts, why not become a Friend?
