AboutSaffron Hall is an award-winning 740-seat performance space built in the grounds of Saffron Walden County High School.
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 Cafe, 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 and is believed to be the largest gift of its kind to a state school.
Saffron Hall is becoming 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 and participation activities. The hall’s location within the County High allows it to be deeply involved in the life of the school, and to work closely both with its students and children from the surrounding primary schools.
In its third full season Saffron Hall continues to realise its aim – to be a trail-blazing model of state school and community music provision, producing outstanding events with world-class artists, inspiring through music and the arts
