Royal Albert Hall's 150th birthday
The Royal Albert Hall celebrates its 150th birthday on 29 March. Opened by Queen Victoria in 1871, this Kensington landmark has hosted gigs, operas, ballets and more as well as the annual summer music festival, the BBC Proms. So much more than just a beautiful Victorian venue, it's the place of countless performances, stories and memories from countless visitors – where people have been singing, dancing, laughing and crying together since 1871. In March The Who plays with a full orchestra.
