In the light of the pandemic and advice from the Government, the Usher Hall and our partner venues, the Assembly Rooms, Church Hill Theatre and Ross Bandstand, are now closed to the public until further notice.

There is also no counter or telephone service until further notice.

Security Measures

Reflecting the need for increased awareness at concert venues the Usher Hall has the following procedures in place:

  • A small sized handbag / back pack will be permitted but must be kept with you at all times
  • No suitcases, large backpacks/rucksacks will be permitted into the venue
  • No alcohol or any bottles/cans are permitted
  • Random bag searches my be carried out throughout the evening at the main entrance doors, please assist our staff by complying as requested.
  • Individual concerts will be subject to additional security measures depending on the nature of the event and the artist. Please visit the ‘Restrictions’ tab on the web page for the event that you are attending, for any further instructions.

While there is no intelligence to suggest a specific threat to Scotland, we feel that these are appropriate measures and ask you to support them and our staff. You should allow extra time to get to the venue and your seat as additional checks will add time to accessing the venue.
