Caird Hall: Dundee’s Concert & Conference Venue

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.
 
Situated close to all travel links, with a variety of car parking nearby 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.  Professional technical and event staff are available on site to assist with the organisation and production of your event. 

The grand Harrison & Harrison pipe organ, part of Dundee’s cultural heritage, is a unique feature of the Caird Hall.  To appreciate the many aspects of this venue, call now to book a visit.

  • “The isamDUNDEE2015 congress left a legacy within the ISAM community, as it initiated several strands of work packages and ideas that are currently in fruition. The most enduring legacy for Dundee is the confidence and pride that the city can host and organise an international conference on such a large scale.”

    Professor Alex Baldacchino, University of Dundee

     

  • "Our members come from locations across Scotland, it’s really important that the AGM is easily accessible to everyone. The convenience of both Dundee and Caird Hall played a huge part during our selection process, situated right in the city centre, surrounded by top-quality cafes, restaurants and shops for delegates to enjoy." 

    Louise Wilson, assistant secretary at EIS

     

  • “The Caird Hall is a fantastic venue and one which we’ve become very familiar with. The layout is ideal as it’s so easy to work the hall, plus the support we receive from those at Caird Hall and Dundee City Council is always second to none. We bring in our own technical team to set up the big screen and handle the recording of the DVD as well as the live-streaming, and it’s so handy that Caird Hall has the right set up and infrastructure to accommodate this without any issues.”

  • MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2015

    “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”

  • Leisure and Culture Dundee 2015 Dundee Sports Awards

    “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.”
