Royal Albert Hall

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.
