This extended closure has put the Royal Albert Hall, like many other venues, in a perilous situation. We were also unable to apply for any of the grants under the Government’s rescue package.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported us since we closed our doors in March. If you can, please consider standing with us and help to ensure that our doors remain open, inspiring artists and audiences worldwide, for another 150 years.

Without shows on we have lost our major source of funding, but there remains a number of ways you can continue to support the Royal Albert Hall during this crisis:
