The Holywell Music Room is the oldest concert hall in Europe, built in 1742, and is famed for its excellent acoustic. Handel is among the many famous composers and musicians to have appeared here. Wadham owns the Room; concerts are held here regularly, especially during University terms, and it can be hired for such purposes via the University Music Faculty (tel 01865 276141). Details of current concerts can be found in Daily Information's Concerts section.
