The History of St Cecilia's Hall
Saturday 20th May 2017This event has passed.

St Cecilia’s Hall is Scotland’s oldest concert hall and it has just recently reopened after an extensive redevelopment. The building itself has a fascinating history and has been everything from a concert hall, church, temple, school, pub and dance hall before it was returned to a concert hall by the University of Edinburgh. This talk explores the history of the building and the people who have used it over the centuries.
