About The Olivier Hall at St Edward’s School, Oxford

The 1,000-seat capacity Olivier Hall is an award-winning purpose-built concert venue and part of a modern academic centre on the historic Quad at St Edward’s School in Oxford.

The stunning venue places a strong sense of community right at the heart of the school and enables the whole school community to come together for performances, concerts and countless other events.

The oval shape of the hall echoes Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre, and its striking oak panelling creates high-quality acoustics in a beautiful theatrical space.
