The majority of programmes are from orchestral concerts. Various orchestras used the hall: there are numerous programmes from London Symphony Orchestra concerts as well as many programmes from the London Philharmonic Orchestra in the 1930s and early 1940s. There are also programmes from concerts given by the Queen's Hall Orchestra and the New Queen's Hall Orchestra, as well as a few from the Queen's Hall Choral Society. There are some programmes from chamber concerts or recitals, which often took place in the “Small hall”. Concerts were organised by various bodies and individuals, including the Philharmonic Society for instance. The hall was also used for amateur orchestras and choirs: for example, there are a number of programmes in the collection from the Stock Exchange Orchestra and Choral Society from the early years of the collection. There are programmes from a number of different festivals with concerts held at the Queen's hall: for example, there are programmes from the London Music Festival, in particular the London Music Festival held in 1939.
The collection is not complete. The collection is physically largest from 1931 to 1941, where there are 21 boxes of material. To compare, there are six boxes of material for the years 1895-1905. The collection contains a programme from a performance of Dream of Gerontius at 2:30 pm on 10/5/41, the last concert given at the hall before it was destroyed in the Blitz. The collection also contains adverts and flyers for concerts after this date, on 17th, 24th and 31st May.
The collection is arranged chronologically.
