Opened by Queen Victoria in 1871 in memory of her beloved husband Prince Albert, the Royal Albert Hall is one of the UK's most treasured and distinctive buildings. This vast concert hall in South Kensington has been the home of the BBC proms since 1941 and can hold an audience of over 5000. Many of the world's leading artists have performed on its stage. The variety of the performances spans every genre, from classical music, rock and pop concerts, ballet, and opera, to accompanied film screenings, tennis matches, award ceremonies, and charity events.
