“Superb new concert hall.” Daily Telegraph
Saffron Hall is the award-winning 740-seat performance space built in the grounds of Saffron Walden County High School that is establishing itself as a vibrant cultural centre for the region, offering outstanding artistic encounters in an expanding programme that weaves international artists together with local performance groups and Learning & Participation activities. The hall’s critically acclaimed acoustic and state-of-the-art facilities surpass many of the world’s more established venues and, since the hall opened in November 2013, artists including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Maxim Vengerov, Penguin Café, Nicola Benedetti, Courtney Pine and The Sixteen have performed on its stage. Close to Saffron Walden’s historic town centre, the £10-million venue is the result of a partnership between the School and Yellow Car Charitable Trust whose donation to enable the building of Saffron Hall is believed to be the largest gift of its kind to a state school.
