17 Venues

Everyone knows London is one of the world’s great cities but the United Kingdom offers so much more. The highlands of Scotland, colorful seaside villages of Wales and the rugged beauty of England’s Lake District are all well worth a visit. Factor in such familiar cultural icons as the Royal Family, the Beatles and Harry Potter plus the fact that English is spoken here – well, sort of – and it’s easy to see why this is such a popular destination for Americans.

Featured Venues

From the world-famous Royal Albert Hall in London to wonderful cathedrals, university halls and outdoor bandstands, the United Kingdom has a wealth of wonderful performance venues for your group.

St. Paul’s Cathedral


St Paul’s Cathedral, with its vast dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline and known across the world. It is the mother church of the Diocese of London and sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point of the City of London. High quality choirs can apply to sing Evensong at the cathedral, which is an incredible experience for any singer.

Royal Albert Hall


This large concert hall in Westminster holds over 5,000 seats and is used for professional ensembles. Every year, the hall plays host to hundreds of concerts, from jazz to classical to contemporary. Be sure to stop in for a visit on your tour to London and maybe perform or attend a concert here!

Southwark Cathedral


On the River Thames lies the Gothic Southwark Cathedral, the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark. The venue is suitable for both choirs and orchestras wishing to perform a concert or within a church service. To perform in this venue, your ensemble must be approved in advance!

St. Saviour’s


St. Saviour’s is an Anglo-Catholic church in London, located at the north end of St. George’s Square. It was constructed in the 1860’s based on a design by Thomas Cundy, who had previously built St Gabriel’s. As with St Gabriel’s, St Saviour’s was designed in the Gothic style and built in ragstone to emphasize the contrast with the classical stucco of its secular neighbors. Come at lunchtime on Friday’s for their concert series, or take part in the Westfest festival which takes place annually during the last two weeks of June and the first week of July. A wonderful venue with great audiences!

Edinburgh Castle


Edinburgh Castle is the historic fortress that accentuates the skyline of Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, from its position on Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, and it has now been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Concerts can be given in the Great Hall of the Castle, which is a fantastic and memorable experience.

St. Giles’ Cathedral


Sometimes regarded as the mother church of Presbyterianism, this 900 year-old cathedral (or the High Kirk) is a prominent feature of the Edinburgh skyline. Dedicated to St. Giles’, the patron saint of Edinburgh, the cathedral is one of Scotland’s most important and prominent historic buildings. Five services are held every Sunday, as well as daily and special services.

Glasgow Cathedral


Built around the 12th century, this Gothic style medieval church is believed to be sitting where Saint Mungo built his church. It is one of the very few that actually survived the reformation without much damage. The cathedral was once the seat of a bishop but it is now home to the Church of Scotland. The church has played part in the battles that took place in Glasgow in 1544 and 1560, and has also been home to the University of Glasgow where the university classes originated.

Bath Abbey


Bath Abbey, an Anglican parish church and former monastery, was founded in the 7th century and is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul. The church is a UK Listed Building (historic landmark) and contains various war memorials and monuments in the form of plaques and stained glass. The abbey is often used for secular civic ceremonies, religious services, lectures, and concerts, and while it is home to its own choral groups, it has also been a popular venue for visiting choirs, as well.

St. Michael’s Without


The church of St. Michael’s Without, which earned its name because it formerly stood “without” the walls of the medieval city, was first built roughly 900 years ago. The current structure, which is the fourth version on this property, was dedicated in 1837. This is an incredible historic venue, and is ideal for daytime concerts.

Amaryllis Fleming Hall, Royal College of Music


Located in the Royal College of Music, this concert hall can accommodate large orchestras/choirs and features new lighting and sound equipment, perfect for capturing professional shots and recordings of your ensemble! Joint concerts are also possible with the college students for a nice international exchange.

Christ Church Cathedral


Christ Church is the cathedral of the Anglican diocese of Oxford and is also the chapel of Christ Church at the University of Oxford. This dual role as cathedral and college chapel is unique in the Church of England. This gorgeous cathedral has incredible acoustics and is a wonderful venue for choral music.

Coventry Cathedral


Coventry, England

The original 15th century Coventry Cathedral was almost completely destroyed in WWII, leaving only the spire, tower, and outer wall somewhat in tact. After the war, a new cathedral was built directly next to the bombed cathedral, to symbolize of the futility of war. The new cathedral has become an icon of 20th century church architecture.

Mayfair Grosvenor Chapel


The Mayfair Grosvenor Chapel has served the parish of Mayfair since 1730, offering reverential worship with high-quality choral music in a beautiful, luminous interior. The architecture of the exterior influenced numerous churches that were built in New England in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, showcasing the beautiful architecture of this structure.

Parade Garden’s Bandstand


The Parade Garden’s Bandstand sits at the beautiful Victorian Garden’s center. The gardens sit alongside the River Avon and contain some of the best floral bedding displays in Great Britain. Though the garden is a very popular picnicking spot, it also houses an outdoor café. In the summer months, concerts and children’s entertainment programs are held in the bandstand. A beautiful spot to simultaneously bask in sunlight and perform for local and foreign onlookers

Salisbury Cathedral


Salisbury, England

Considered to be one of the leading examples of early English architecture, Salisbury Cathedral is topped with the tallest church spire in the UK. Visitors can take the Tower Tour and view the hollow interior of the spire. The Cathedral also contains the world’s oldest working clock (1385 A.D.) and also one of the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta. With so many treasures housed inside this gem of a church, it’s no wonder Salisbury Cathedral is a prestigious venue where our groups love to perform.

St. Helen Church, Stonegate


York, England

Dating back to medieval times, St Helen Stonegate is an excellent choice for any performing group as it hosts regular daytime concerts throughout the year and also takes part in the annual Festival of Ideas in June. Located in bustling central York, a good audience is almost guaranteed. In addition to its good acoustics, it also houses a wealth of history from its 16th century bells to 14th century stained glass windows as well as a magnificent organ.

Warwick Castle


Warwick, England

William the Conqueror first constructed a wooden fort in 1068 that would later become Warwick Castle. During the 12th century, the original timber motte-and-bailey castle was rebuilt in stone. This castle represents one of the most recognizable instances of military architecture from the time period, and represents a truly unique opportunity for touring ensembles. Concerts can be performed either in the Great Hall or the Chapel, and we highly recommend dedicating a half-day for your visit and concert. There’s just so much to see!
