The Caird Hall is Dundee's major Concert, Conference and Events venue, situated in the heart of the City. This 4 star arts venue creates a stunning profile for your event with the main entrance amid the Doric columns opening to the pedestrianised City Square, whilst overlooking the waterfront development and the V & A on the south side of the building.
Close to all travel links, with a variety of car parking around and a range of accommodation within walking distance, the Caird Hall is easily accessible for your delegates/audiences.
The Grade A listed building has been refurbished to allow the flexibility required of a multi-use facility. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, and our professional technical and event staff are available on site to assist with the organisation of your meeting or event.

“Caird Hall is a good-sized venue and enables us to provide classroom style seating for our delegates to accommodate their documentation. The staff involved were so welcoming and helpful throughout the whole experience, which is of assistance to STUC staff.”
“The Caird Hall has the best capacity for an event of this nature. It’s a highly successful event and The Caird Hall allows us to develop the event further in terms of numbers but also to enhance the visual impact of the event with different room dressings and a much broader choice of entertainment options. We want it to be a dynamic event which has something different every year and The Caird Hall gives us this expansion potential.”
“We have run the event in so many other venues that we knew the Caird Hall would work for us as soon as we walked in. Right away we could see that it’s obviously a pretty amazing venue. It allowed us to build a bigger event than previously and the support of the technical team at The Caird Hall worked alongside the broadcast crews from the BBC to ensure a seamless approach. The Caird Hall team were such warm hosts and Dundee City Council also provided overwhelming support for the event”
