This January and February, the Royal Albert Hall is offering visitors the opportunity to go backstage at the much-loved concert hall, and discover areas of the iconic venue usually off-limits to the public.
Giving the nation unprecedented access to one of Britain’s most inspiring and lively buildings, the Behind the Scenes tour allows visitors access to locations within the Grade I listed Hall that are usually only open to artists, performers and crew.
Go under the stage to walk in the footsteps of iconic performers past and present, from Lianne La Havas and Adele to Shirley Bassey and the Spice Girls. Then head deep underground to the Loading Bay where the magical sets for The Nutcracker entered the building before dazzling an audience of 22,800 across seven performances in December.
The tour goes even further to give the full artist experience, taking guests into the dressing rooms so they can strut around the very room where Mick Jagger prepared for his trio of sold-out Rolling Stones shows in the ‘60s – the third of which caused a mini-riot.
The daytime tour allows visitors to see the extraordinary venue in all its glory, and catch sights that may be missed – or out of bounds – during an evening gala or concert. They’ll also gain a rare insight into how the show, hospitality and technical teams come together to stage more than 380 diverse and spectacular events in the main auditorium each year.
