Royal Albert Hall

The Royal Albert Hall 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.

The Hall is a Grade 1 listed building; and has been in continous use since it was opended in March 1871. It has always conceived as a multipurpose building to host not only concerts of music but exhibitions, public meetings, scientific conversations and award ceremonies. It is a registered charity held in trust for the nation but is financially self sufficient , it receives no funding from central or local government.
