Support the Hall
Please support the Royal Albert Hall.
Your support can allow us to:
- Preserve and develop our Grade I-listed building, allowing us to bring more extraordinary moments to our stages and welcome more people than ever before
- Change lives through music through our Education & Outreach programme, bringing concerts to care homes, offering music therapy sessions, and creating unique experiences for young people
- Maintain and grow our archive, preserving our nation’s memories and making them accessible to everyone
We want to continue to leave a mark. To bring more extraordinary moments to the stage. To showcase the artists who will delight tomorrow’s audience just as much as the greats of the past delighted theirs. To inspire and nurture a love of music in new generations and to keep an innovative cultural fire burning bright.
Let’s not just marvel at the Royal Albert Hall’s story. Let’s keep writing it – we’ve got more history to make.

COVID-19 Update From our CEO
Today we passed a heartbreaking milestone in our history, six months since we were forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our doors remain closed to the public while social distancing makes the majority of events untenable.
If you care about the Hall because we’re on your bucket list or you have a treasured memory, because you dream of appearing on our stage one day or share our belief in the power of music to change lives, please donate today. With your support, we can open our doors as soon as it is possible to do so.
Closing the Royal Albert Hall on a long-term basis and waiting for this storm to pass is not in our DNA. As the nation’s village hall, we exist to bring people together, we believe that life without music is hardly worth living and that people need music and shared experiences more than ever in times of trauma like these.
The Hall has foregone £18m in income since we had to close on 17 March, and refunded £6.5m in tickets. Despite being referred to as one of the nation’s ‘crown jewels’ in the announcement of the £1.57bn rescue package for arts and heritage, the Hall could not apply for an emergency grant. The best we can hope for is a loan and, even if successful, the money won’t reach us until December.
While our doors remain closed, 1.5m people have watched Royal Albert Home, our series of streamable events from artists’ homes over five months; we hosted two weeks of live concerts from the BBC Proms; and last week we confirmed a socially distanced Christmas season. While socially distanced events are not a long-term solution or financially viable, we want more than anything to start bringing our beloved building back to life.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us since our closure in March. If you can, please consider standing with the Royal Albert Hall and help to ensure that our doors remain open, inspiring artists and audiences worldwide, for another 150 years.
