More about

The Royal Albert Hall is the world's most famous stage, held in trust for the nation’s benefit. The Hall's purpose is to promote the Arts and Sciences and preserve and enhance its Grade I listed building. The world’s leading figures in music, dance, sport, science, fashion, politics and performance have appeared on its stage since it opened in 1871, and now over 1.7 million people enjoy live experiences there every year, with millions more experiencing events through broadcasts, recordings and new media channels. The Royal Albert Hall’s archive is a unique culture, arts and science heritage resource, which exists to collect, preserve and makes accessible the Hall’s unique history. The largest collections focus on the records of events, the organisation and the iconic building and include items such as programmes, posters, handbills, photographs, architectural plans, artworks, costumes, administrative records, and ephemeral items such as tickets and merchandising. Smaller collections include records of the Queen’s Hall, former home of the Proms; the 1851 Great Exhibition and 1862 International Exhibition; and Queen Victoria & Prince Albert.
