The most iconic concert hall in the world celebrates 150 years with a stunning review of history's finest performances and performers.

Opening with a personal letter from Queen Elizabeth II, this beautiful book celebrates 150 moments that have shaped The Royal Albert Hall over the last century and a half.

From The Beatles to the Suffragettes, Albert Einstein to Winston Churchill, Mohammed Ali to B.B.

King, few other buildings have housed such a stunning variety of era-defining people and events. This gorgeous, illustrated guide takes you behind the scenes of one of the most well-loved concert halls in the world, offering insights into the building's iconic architecture, as well as its lesser-known quirks such as the reinforced toilets designed for Sumo wrestlers.

This book features events ranging from the world's first sci-fi convention in 1891 to the annual Cirque du Soleil, which requires the auditorium to be transformed into a gymnasium.

Autographs and candid comments from incredible performers who have appeared on its stage, like Russell Howard, Eric Clapton and Katie Derham, give a unique insider's perspective on an esteemed and beloved British institution.

With never-before-seen images, insights and more, this is the ultimate celebration of a British architectural icon which continues to inspire artists and audiences from around the world.
