We have a new booking system in place. Through this system any student or member of Queen Mary staff will be able to book Basement Music Room One, Basement Music Room Two and the Main Music Room (Music Scholars only) located in the People's Palace. Emails must come from you music address.

The Piano Room is only bookable through the Queens' Building Reception. The room operates on a first come first serve basis.
