The Royal Albert Hall is one of the most iconic performance venues in the world. It was built to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria's consort) of a 'Central Hall' that would be used to promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences and would stand at the heart of the South Kensington estate, surrounded by museums and places of learning.
Each year it hosts more than 370 events in the main auditorium and 200 shows in other spaces, including classical concerts, rock and pop, ballet and opera, sports, award ceremonies, school and community events, charity performances and banquets.
The Hall is a registered charity held in trust for the nation and receives no public or central and local government funding.

The National Slam Final
- 27 September 2014 1:15pm-3:15am
The UK's finest performance poets / spoken word artists / verbose verbalised minds / masters-of-spit-and-wit go head to head to see who is the greatest at the National Slam Final at the Royal Albert Hall.
Hammer & Tongue, the UK's poetry slam organisation, has been running poetry slams throughout the country all year and each region's winners compete to take the title.
A poetry slam is a democratic system of choosing a poetry champion where the audience decides who wins the day. The power of judgement is with the poet's peers and they must connect with and entertain the audience.
