Dora Stoutzker Hall

Combining elegant contemporary architecture with state-of-the-art acoustics, the magnificent Dora Stoutzker Hall has a capacity of 400 seats and has been host to many concerts and high-profile events.

About the hall

Our world-class Dora Stoutzker Hall (400-seats), with its excellent acoustics, is the only purpose-built chamber recital hall in Wales. Lined with golden timber and an upper balcony, the hall wraps the audience around the performers, creating a shared intimate experience for musicians and audiences alike.

Greatly admired by musicians and audiences alike, the beauty and world class acoustic of “the Dora” inspires and showcases the musical performances of our young artists while also attracting internationally renowned professionals to perform on its stage and work with our students every year. A rich and diverse programme keeps the hall in use all year round including for international competitions such as BBC Young Musician and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World.
