QUEEN'S HALL, in Langham Place, has accommodation for 3,000 persons. There are 17 exits, the danger in case of panic by fire being thereby reduced to a minimum. The ceiling is painted by Carpegat. The Philharmonic Concerts are given here in the Spring, and the Symphony Concerts in Winter. Concerts have of late been given on Sunday afternoons by the association known as Sunday Clubland, so that those people engaged in business during the week, may have some opportunity of gratifying their love of music. The hall was opened in 1893.
