Concerts at Kincardine Castle
Whatever the performance you wish to stage, Kincardine Castle can provide the perfect setting and top class acoustics to complement the show.
The Great Hall in Kincardine has been the venue for a number of fabulous musical evenings over the years. We have had to pinch ourselves when Clio Gould came and played her magnificent Rutson Stradivarius (1694) with the Scottish Ensemble. A truly magical evening.
In winter the arrival, to the floodlit castle, and the entrance, through the candlelit marble hall, is just a fairytale.
In summer, the amazing views over Royal Deeside and the beautiful and tranquil gardens complement perfectly the fine music you are about to hear.
Once onto the Principal Floor you can be greeted with a glass of champagne in the Dining room before moving on to enjoy the performance. The Great Hall has excellent acoustics and a fantastic ambience.
With the numbers involved we can cater for a finger buffet either during an interval or after the concert is over.
Get set for a very special evening.
Opera: By locating the performers at the foot of the main staircase there is the opportunity for some theatrical or operatic action too. For the stairs gain a little height before turning up past two arched openings looking over the Great Hall and thence to the magnificent musician's gallery which runs along the whole of one end of the Hall. Truly, the only limitation is one's imagination.
Outside Concerts and Opera: We haven’t yet done this but we have the space and the setting for a spectacular event. Obviously this will require much further discussion - Contact us.
Our Piano: The Steinway grand piano was built in Leipzig in 1912 and is a very fine instrument. At a recent concert the pianist said that Rachmaninov would have killed for it!
Capacity: The Great Hall can seat a maximum of 80 people on comfortable chairs
