Get ready to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with the Royal Albert Hall as it opens its doors this December with a host of festive favourite shows and furthermore you’ll be able to enjoy them direct from inside as they welcome back a live audience.

For more than 147 years, the historic venue has celebrated the holiday season in true British style as it played host to stunning new shows and all out Christmas concerts.

Last year although we were unable to be physically inside a theatre, the hall streamed most of its iconic shows live from the website however this Christmas season is looking a lot happier as they welcome back an in-theatre audience

Highlights for this season include Guy Baker’s Big Band Christmas, ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ in Concert, and the hugely popular Carols at the Royal Albert Hall. Like last year’s shows, these are set to sell out quickly.
