The first performance by the Royal Choral Society was staged on May 8, 1872. Since 1876, the choir has been staging Handel’s Messiah every year on Good Friday.
The other regular event hosted by The Royal Albert Hall is The Proms (or the promenade concert). The legendary concert hall has been the venue of this famous classical music concert since 1941. The Proms is an eight-week long event and is held every year during the summertime. A visit during the winter months, on the other hand, might give you the opportunity of watching some exciting tennis matches.
