Hire the Hall

Set in the heart of Chelsea, Cadogan Hall has become one of London’s leading venues. The Hall’s excellent acoustic and luxurious surroundings make it the first choice for both classical and contemporary music alike, as well as dance, talks, debates, and conferences.

Hall information

Cadogan Hall’s auditorium features raked stalls and full gallery seating to a maximum capacity of 953 people.

Breakout rooms include the main foyer and the Culford, Oakley, and Caversham Rooms. All spaces are suitable for cocktails, dining, product launches, trade exhibitions and AGM’s.

All areas are wheelchair accessible and offer audio assistance for the hearing impaired.

Social distancing

Through the period of social distancing restrictions, we are open for bookings for events that are for broadcast only, rehearsals and recordings. We are also very happy to look towards the future working with you to plan for events with a socially-distanced audience.

For all bookings made in this time the Culford, Caversham, and Oakley Rooms are available to all clients inclusive of Main Auditorium rentals.

Combined, these large floor spaces enable safe social distancing with immediate access to restrooms and stage access via an easy to follow, one-way system.

Furthermore, all recording facility fees including audio, video and live broadcast/streaming are waivered during the period of social distancing restrictions.

Cadogan Hall is fully compliant with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19.
