The Royal Albert Hall
This world leading entertainment venue hosts the BBC Proms every Summer.
The Royal Albert Hall, London
The Royal Albert Hall has a long and rich history as one of the world's leading entertainment venues. Since its opening concert in 1871 over 150,000 performances have taken place inside the Auditorium.
As well as hosting the Proms every summer since they were bombed out of the Queen's Hall in 1941, The Royal Albert Hall has been used for classical and rock concerts, conferences, ballroom dancing, poetry, keep-fit displays, education, ballet, opera and even a circus. It has hosted many sporting events, including boxing, wrestling (including the first Sumo wrestling tournament ever to be held outside Japan) and tennis. It also hosts the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, held the day before Remembrance Sunday.
The Royal Albert Hall is currently engaged in the first comprehensive programme of restoration, conceived in the early 1990's, and will be completed in 2004. The aim is to restore one of the nation's most treasured and distinctive buildings to its former glory and develop it to meet the needs of modern audiences.
The Royal Albert Hall was constructed mainly of brick, with terra cotta block decoration. The dome on top was made of steel and glazed. There was a trial assembly made of the steel framework of the dome in Manchester, then it was taken apart again and transported down to London via horse and cart.
Located on the south side of Kensington Gardens, this is where the main orchestral Proms take place in The Royal Albert Hall.
