The School's Milton Court has a 608-seat concert hall plus two theatres (227- seat and studio), three rehearsal rooms, television studio suite, departments for costume, wigs and make-up, office space, tutorial rooms and public foyers. This enables Guildhall School to offer facilities commensurate with those in the profession, helping to attract the most highly regarded teachers and best students internationally. The cultural quarter in the heart of the City of London stretches from the School’s two buildings and the Barbican on Silk Street up to the Barbican’s two cinemas, and northwards to LSO St Luke’s on Old Street, offering a richly varied range of venues and performances spaces. The Milton Court Concert Hall is also used by the Barbican’s two new Associate Ensembles - the Academy of Ancient Music and Britten Sinfonia – where part of their Barbican season performances will take place, for Barbican classical and contemporary own promotions and commercial hire, as well as for Creative Learning, the Barbican’s joint outreach division with the School. The School also offers a wide range of short courses across music, drama, production arts and cross-arts. Whether you’re thinking about learning something completely new, exploring a hobby or passion, or just brushing up on existing skills, there is a course to suit. Experienced Guildhall School teachers and industry-leading guest tutors lead the classes, offering an insight into Guildhall’s world-class learning environment in a fun and supportive setting.
