De Montfort Hall


De Montfort Hall


De Montfort Hall has been one of Leicester's premier entertainment venues for over a century, hosting live music events ranging from pop to classical, theatre, stand-up comedy, musicals and operas.

The venue hosts an eclectic range of quality events, including live music and festivals from rock to pop, touring West End musicals, internationally recognised comedians, opera and orchestra, ballet and dance and children’s shows.

De Montfort Hall is set amongst beautiful gardens, which occasionally host outdoor stages to treat visitors to stunning views whilst enjoying the show.

The hall is proud to have been a residence of the Philharmonia Orchestra since 1997. Acknowledged as one of the world's greatest orchestras, the Philharmonia run a programme of concerts as well as community and educational events each year.

Their convenient website lets you check what’s on at the venue, login to purchase tickets – you can even select seats from their online seating plan – and book your parking in advance.

On the night everything you need is taken care of, with an on-site car park manned by staff, easy access to the city centre for pre- or post-show dinner and drinks, friendly box office staff as well as bars and snacks for refreshment during the show.

The hall is also home to a magnificent pipe organ; it has almost 6,000 pipes and is believed to be one of the last surviving example of its kind in the world. It was constructed in Leicester by organ builders Stephen Taylor and Son Ltd., and was a gift to the town by local industrialist Alfred Corah.

The venue’s main hall is available for private hire, with the adjoining suites making perfect breakout rooms. These versatile areas can be set up to suit most events, from conferences and award ceremonies to exhibitions.
