Wigmore Hall is a relatively small concert space that generally offers performances by small ensembles, soloists, etc. It is located within walking distance of the Oxford Circus Underground station, where several major lines converge.
On 31 Dec I make my first visit to Wigmore Hall to hear a concert by an historically informed music group called Retrospect. The 12 to 15 performers pretty much filled up the stage, but that added a lot to the intimacy and power of their performance. The hall has excellent acoustics, a storied history as the showroom for Bechstein, the German piano makers, and offers dining options during (and perhaps after) performances. A coat check stand in the basement is an added amenity that is helpful on a cold winter day.
The staff is very friendly and helpful to concertgoers.
I will gladly attend future events here but I do want to point out two negative aspects of my recent visit there: 1) the concert hall was very hot and stuffy; 2) the seats are quite narrow and I wound up with a reserved seat next to the wall, which was not what I expected. I'd recommend making sure you know exactly what seat you are reserving if you come to an event here and also dress in layers in case it's too hot for your tastes.
But, you won't be disappointed by either the quality of the performances here or the acoustics!
