LIVE Music in King's Hall

King's Hall Music is returning…

LIVE in the King's Hall Lunchtime Concerts, Student Performances and other recitals organised by the International Centre for Music Studies (ICMuS), will return to the Armstrong Building from October 2016.

Lunchtime Concerts, Student Performances and recitals are free and open to members of the public, staff and students.

Lunchtime Concerts

Lunchtime Concerts return to the King’s Hall, which is on the ground floor of the Armstrong Building, Queen Victoria Road (opposite the RVI hospital). You can find the location on our campus map (PDF: 1.4MB). The King’s Hall is in building number 22.

Concerts will continue to take place on Thursdays, starting on 27 October.

Lunchtime Concerts start promptly at 1.10pm and last around 50 minutes.

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

Student Performances

Student Performances return to the King’s Hall in the Armstrong Building.

Performances return to a start time of 4.00pm and last approximately one hour, offering an opportunity for music students to showcase work in progress on a public platform.

Access to the King’s Hall

Due to the refurbishment of the ground floor of the Armstrong Building, access to part of the building will be restricted.

For access to the King’s Hall, please enter the Armstrong Building via the main front entrance (opposite the RVI hospital). This is an accessible entrance. The King’s Hall is straight ahead of the main foyer.

Alternatively, you can enter the Armstrong Building via the side entrance off the Quadrangle, if you are coming from the University arches. Once in the building, head along the main corridor, through a set of double doors, and the King’s Hall is on your left.

There are new toilet facilities off the main corridor on the ground floor, including an accessible toilet.

Parking

There is no public parking on Newcastle University campus. Please visit the NCP car park website for your nearest options.
