Additional Information and Frequently asked Questions

There are lots of car parks surrounding Central Hall. Click HERE to see them

The bar is open for large events. It is card payment only.

We generally open 30 minutes before an event. However we try to open the concourses and bar 1 hour before the event.

We have no control over ticket prices. The promoters book Central Hall on behalf of their artists as part of their national tours, and they set the price of the tickets.

This can vary from event to event depending on the artist and promoter (as they hire the venue and determine the cancellation policy).

Our auditorium is accessible from the ground floor. Ground floor seats are in the centre block (Block A).

Generally no, however we always create one for big events.

Yes. Our café is open Monday to Thursday from 0830 – 1530hrs.
