The planned Sea Shambles event at the Hall was sadly cancelled, but we’re delighted that a rejigged at-home version of the show will form part of our Royal Albert Home series.

In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.

Anchored by Robin Ince (co-host of Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage), Dr Helen Czerski (renowned physicist and oceanographer) and Steve Backshall (naturalist, explorer and wildlife presenter), the show will see a range of special guest scientists, comedians and musicians join the fun from their living rooms for a science, music and comedy show about the past, present and future of our blue planet.

We look forward to welcoming you to this eclectic livestream event for comedy lovers, music fans and science enthusiasts alike.

Royal Albert Home

As artists generously share their work with you, we ask that you generously support us so that the Royal Albert Hall can come back strong when we reopen our doors to the world.

If you can donate a fraction of the price of a ticket to see one of these artists live, you will be supporting the Hall for a brighter future.
