The Wathen Hall at St Paul's School (London) in London is considered one of the most successful smaller concert halls to be built in London over the past decade. Designed by BHM Architects and opened in 1999 it forms part of the St Paul's School Music department and is used for school concerts as well as external events.[1] The hall seats 316 people.[2] Artists appearing there during the opening season included pianists Murray Perahia and Radu Lupu, and violinst Maxim Vengerov. The Wathen Hall has become well known as a recording venue for solo and chamber music and its acoustics have been widely praised.[3]
