Become a Friend

As a charity with no regular government funding we rely on the income from our shows, and with no shows due to our closure we find ourselves in a perilous financial situation.

Please join us today as a Friend or Patron and join the thousands who are committing to support the Royal Albert Hall through the COVID-19 crisis.


Join our community of supporters, whose donations will go a long way towards helping the Hall through the current COVID-19 crisis:

Current benefits include:

  • Regular Royal Albert Hall updates – be the first to hear of our reopening plans, events to book for our 150th celebrations and much more as we head into 2021
  • Additional 15% discount in our online shop – bring a bit of the Hall into your home
  • Additional 3 months automatically added to your membership when you join

Once the Hall reopens, our Friends will also benefit from the following:

  • Selected Priority Booking – online booking for Friends with access to Friends ticket allocations and booking ahead of the public for a variety of shows*
  • Email notification of show announcements and latest news
  • Friends’ Pop-Up Bars for you and a guest
  • Discounts on tours and lunches in Verdi – Italian Kitchen
