With its beautiful acoustics and inspiring architecture, the Great Hall has hosted rehearsals for many of the country’s finest orchestras. Favoured by professional and amateur companies, Bishopsgate Institute welcomes all types of ensembles.
The Great Hall benefits from high ceilings, sound panels and an inbuilt stage, as well as private access to the Green Room.
Our experienced team are happy to discuss any technical requirements, additional break-out rooms, and hire of a Steinway grand piano. Full day and half day hire rates are available, with the option of adding additional hours.
