Support Our Work
'The work of education departments such as yours transforms our students’ understanding of Dance and the Arts. You bring to life what we teachers do in the classroom, giving our work a sense of reality and vitality that is impossible for us to create without your assistance. The legacy of these amazing projects is such that their benefits can extend far into the future for the students and teachers who have been lucky enough to participate in them.'
Simon Dobson, Director of Dance, Holland Park School
Key to the fulfilment of the Royal Albert Hall's charitable objects are:
• To continue and further expand our programme of Education, especially with young people who might otherwise have little opportunity to experience live performance or visit the Hall.
• To ensure the long term maintenance and further development of this important, Grade I Listed building.
• To encourage and develop new talent through the Hall's own programming initiatives.
The Royal Albert Hall receives no revenue funding from central or local government and for that reason financial support from trusts, companies and individual benefactors is especially valued.
The Hall is owned and operated by a registered charity and has as its objectives promoting the Arts and Sciences and maintaining the building. By hiring out the Hall to those who stage concerts and other events, and through some of our own programming, we are able to cover the day-to-day operating costs of the building. But we need financial support to help us fulfil our aims.
