 Royal Albert Hall logo

The Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. It has been in continuous use since it was opened in 1871 as a multipurpose building to host music concerts, dance spectaculars, exhibitions, scientific conversations and award ceremonies. It is a registered charity held in trust for the nation and receives no central or local government funding.

As a charity the Royal Albert Hall is dedicated to giving access to all by running a thriving Education and Outreach programme working with children, teachers, young people, families and community groups. We deliver a wide range of exciting opportunities linked to the Hall’s calendar of events and the unique characteristics of the building, including specially created tours, workshops, projects and schools matinees.
