Royal Albert Hall Launches the Newly Refurbished Prince of Wales Room

9 June, 2009

The Royal Albert Hall is pleased to introduce the newly styled Prince of Wales Room, a remarkable space where guests can enjoy private receptions before or after a performance. Offering private
dining and excellent service, the Prince of Wales Room offers a classical touch to the magnificent range of rooms available for private hire and corporate entertainment for up to 30 people for a sitdown dinner or 40 for a standing reception.

Situated in close proximity of the auditorium with a magnificent view of the Albert Memorial and Hyde Park, the opulent Prince of Wales Room is of great historical significance to the Royal Albert
Hall. Previously reserved as the complimentary room to the original Queen's Room, the room was later used as the Retiring Room by the Prince of Wales, later known as King Edward 7th, who
owned a box across the Grand Tier shared with the Duke of Edinburgh.

'Royal Albert Hall is proud to have this room on offer, allowing hosts to offer the ideal package, combining the elegance of the Prince of Wales Room with a private box to enjoy world class
entertainment. Thanks to the diverse programme, ranging from classical to rock music and sports, the Royal Albert Hall is one of the world’s most popular venues and always the perfect choice to
provide a magical evening for your corporate clients and private guests alike', said Michelle Aland, Head of Marketing & Corporate Relations, Royal Albert Hall.

Last refurbished in 1991 by Ian Grant, a member of the Victorian Society, the Prince of Wales room has been newly designed by Donald Insall Associates, who were the co-ordinating architects for the restoration of Windsor Castle after the fire and have worked at the Royal Albert Hall since 1994. The designers have captured the intriguing history of the room with its classic and airy design which exhibits a charming collection of paintings donated to the Hall by Charles Graham Dixon in 1985 when he was vice president of the Hall.
