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, 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.

Simon Thoumire, Creative Director, Hands Up for Trad
August 2023

"Having organised the Scots Trad Music Awards in numerous other locations around Scotland, we knew right away that the Caird Hall would be a perfect fit from the moment we stepped inside. The venue's inherent charm and impressiveness were immediately evident. It empowered us to create a larger event compared to our past endeavors. The technical team at The Caird Hall collaborated seamlessly with the TV broadcast crews, guaranteeing a brilliant broadcast. The team at Caird Hall extended their hospitality warmly, and Dundee City Council's unwavering support greatly contributed to the event's success.”

Sarah Wiktorski, Director of Operations, Scottish Trade Union Congress
August 2023

STUC Annual Congress “The Caird Hall is one of the only venues in Scotland which is large enough to host our Annual Congress and can provide the layout that we need. The staff are very welcoming, and we always feel we are in safe hands at the Caird Hall! Having full confidence in the venue makes our job as the organisers much easier. I have no hesitation in recommending the Caird Hall.”

Alex Knight, Leisure and Culture Dundee
April 2019

“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.”
