Over the past 150 years, Royal Albert Hall has hosted every type of event imaginable, from rock concerts performed by the world's most popular bands to even indoor marathons. But what are the origins behind this famous concert hall and when did it become the premier venue for just about every large event? It's time to explore one of Britain's most interesting buildings, both inside and out.
Join New York Adventure Club as we delve into the complete history of Royal Albert Hall — originally built in 1871 as London's premier Victorian concert hall, this venue has since branched out to host an eclectic variety of events, from Beach Boys and Bob Marley concerts to trade shows and Titanic memorials.
Led by award winning London Blue Badge Tourist Guide David Drury, our virtual showcase of London's Royal Albert Hall will include:
-The origins of the 150-year-old concert venue and look at its incredible architecture
-A discussion of the first non-music events to be held at Royal Albert Hall
-A look at some of the most famous events to ever grace the hall , including rousing speeches by Sir Winston Churchill, a rock and roll concert featuring the Beatles and Rolling Stones, and boxing matches featuring Muhammad Ali
-The history of the BBC Proms , which is still considered the world's greatest classical music festival
-A review of some of the most unique events to ever be hosted at the hall, such as the first Sumo Wrestling tournament to take place outside of Japan in 1,500 years to a bodybuilding competition judged by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Afterward, we'll have a Q&A session with David — any and all questions about London's Royal Albert Hall are welcomed and encouraged!
