West Road Concert Hall

West Road Concert Hall is one of Cambridge's premiere music venues.
Ideally situated only minutes' walk from the famous Cambridge Backs and King's College, it is renowned for its superb acoustic qualities.

Recognising the importance of music as an academic study, the University established the Faculty of Music in 1947 to teach the newly created Music Tripos.

The Faculty now occupies the purpose-built University Music School and West Road Concert Hall, designed by Sir Leslie Martin and built in the mid-1970s.

Also a thriving conference venue, it has the advantage of being housed within the University's Faculty of Music www.mus.cam.ac.uk providing a variety of flexible meeting rooms and a spacious, light and versatile foyer area. Whatever your requirements, you can be assured of our professional and efficient approach to your event and a warm welcome by our staff.
