An established venue for chamber, world and pop music, the Jerwood Hall is intimate, beautiful and extremely comfortable for both public and private performances.
'A very funky venue'
Elton John, BBC Session
Programmers benefit from flexible seating and staging, excellent acoustics and first-rate technical equipment. Glazed windows ensure the space is soundproof and enhanced by natural daylight, while electronic blinds provide black-out for more atmospheric events.
With theatre-style seating for 412, the stunning contemporary design is enhanced by original 18th-century features. Concerts are inspiring for performers and audiences alike and our experienced stage and technical teams help you take full advantage of the venue’s set-up.

Marketing and PRS
Public concerts at LSO St Luke’s are advertised in our termly Events Guide. 16,000 copies of each Guide are printed, sent to a mailing list of around 4,700 people and distributed across London via ‘London Calling’, supported by regular email updates. Promoters are encouraged to produce their own campaigns and basic display facilities are available at the venue in the run-up to each event.
LSO St Luke’s submits information to the PRS for each concert. Charges for performances of copyright music are based on box office receipts and included in the final invoice.
Priority in our diary is given to the LSO’s music education and community programme, LSO Discovery, with a careful balance of artistic and commercial events organised around this. We host a diverse line-up of artists including regular performances organised by partners whose work echoes our own ethos.
'The coolest venue the capital has'

The Jerwood Hall is normally available for public concerts on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Due to the limited number of dates available, suitable concerts are selected very carefully. Not all applications are successful, which can be due to size, profile or expected audience. References will be required for any applicants not already known to the LSO.
Concerts chosen for our programme must be confirmed at least three months before the start of each season; this can mean up to six months in advance of some dates. Applications received after this point may not be considered.
