Royal Albert Hall
The Royal Albert Hall is one of the United Kingdom's most treasured and distinctive buildings and was built in the 1860s in the Italianate style in memory of Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert who died in 1861. It is held in trust for the nation and is managed by a registered charity. The Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences (known as the Royal Albert Hall) is a unique and successful charity incorporated by Royal Charter. It is a Grade I listed building and receives no public funding for its running costs, partly owing to the way the building was originally funded by the sale of seats to Members who subsequently volunteered to financially support the Hall’s charitable objectives by agreeing to pay an annual contribution or ‘seat rate’.*
Since the hall's opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from many various performance styles have graced its stage and it has become the venue for one of the most notable events in British culture, the annual summer season of the Proms concerts, which have been held there since 1941. The 2020 BBC Proms season has now ended.
Seatholders are entitled access to their seats for all Ordinary lettings, which amount to approximately to two thirds of the performances in the Hall in any twelve month period. For those events for which seatholders do not use their tickets, the Hall operates a successful Ticket Return Scheme, which enables seatholder tickets to be sold to the public and for which the seatholder receives a share in the proceeds of the Members tickets that have been returned. In acquiring seats, the seatholder automatically becomes a Member of the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences, the body established by Royal Charter to hold the Hall in trust for the nation.
Harrods Estates have enjoyed a long association with the Royal Albert Hall and have been involved in the sale and acquisition of stall seats and private boxes over the years.Please see a selection of stall seats and boxes below for purchase and please do contact us should you require any further information.
