Prom 24 attended on 4th August featuring Donald Runnicles as conductor. The hall whilst classical seemed much smaller than I imagined, but there was plenty of leg room and reasonably easy to find your way around. As expected food and drink was very expensive, but it very easy to bring your own in. Dress code was very casual as noted... More

We took a gamble taking our children but it was so worth while. We has a wonderful evening at one of the proms, the children behaved fantastically well although we had seats in a loggia box and had the second of the two rows, with more leg room and less chance of disturbing anyone. We needn't have worried because they... More

Everyone should take in a show at the Albert Hall. Is there really any theatrical experience more grand than this in the entire UK? Whether it's one of the private boxes, grand old circle seats or choir stalls you're sitting in you will always be caught up by the sense of occasion. That is, of course, providing you don't fancy...

I took some American friends to see a Proms concert recently. I was highly impressed by the service, attention to detail, disabled facilities and performance. We had the most wonderful seats and, because my friend has a wheelchair, we were seated by an exit, so she would not be disturbed by people going to their seats. We listened to Sibelius... More

Didn't go to a performance but went on the Grand Tour when family came into town. Beautiful inside and out. Got to sit in the box seats and see the Royal waiting room. Even saw a few musicians warming up for the Proms.

I visited the Albert Hall in February to go see Pixar in Concert. I have wanted to go to the Albert Hall ever since I can remember, and it did not disappoint. The venue itself was spectacular, and even though our seats were on the back row right at the top, we still had an amazing view. The acoustics were... More

I attended 3 proms during the recent 2014 season. The music was wonderful on all occasions. We had upper circle seats. Very hot in the warm weather but fine on cooler evenings. the bar is VERY expensive but with plastic cups drinks can be taken into the concert hall which is nice.

Went to the RAH for a prom - great musical experience, but avoid the Elgar Bar & Grill like the plague - slow, poor service, steep prices, not all the choices on the menu available, and had to send our choices back because they were grilled on the outside but raw inside. Manager's excuse was that they were busy. Surprise,... More

The BBC Proms (not the flag waving last night, but the whole 70+ series of concerts) is such a wonderful event, with a suitably impressive venue. Either on my own or with a relative, I attended about seven concerts this years, ranging from Schubert and Mahler to some quite modern music. Every concert is such an occasion, in the very... More

We went for The Cure concert that we succeeded in booking almost by chance but the tickets we were provided - without the possibility of knowing where the seats were.. We found ourselves in a almost riskful corner almost over the scenario. I mean, we went not only to hear music but also to watch and I wonder why RAH... More
