Celebrating ten years of jazz in the Elgar Room, renowned south-Nigerian trumpeter, composer and bandleader Etuk Ubong is bringing some of the freshest jazz sounds to the Hall, as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

Anyone who has ever howled along to the once-ubiquitous Chasing Cars (not for nothing is it the most played song in the history of 21st century radio) will welcome the news of the iconic alt-rocks band’s return to the Royal Albert Hall. Performing at the venue for two nights, Snow Patrol will play re-imagined versions of tracks from their catalogue, as well as new songs from their forthcoming album, Reworked.
21–24 November 2019, 3pm/7:30pm
The 30th anniversary celebration of the UK’s most popular classical music show promises to be as spectacular as it sounds, with state-of-the-art laser displays and an electrifying indoor firework finale – and we haven’t even mentioned the music. Featuring iconic compositions by the likes of Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Handel and Puccini – along with many others – performed by world-class musicians, the show is a must-see for classical music fans.
Whilst You’re There…
Make an occasion of it by booking into CODA by Eric Chavot, the Royal Albert Hall’s fine dining restaurant and bar. Michelin star-awarded chef Eric Chavot has created a menu of seasonal, French-inspired dishes to delight RAH ticketholders, who now make a ritual of heading there for an early supper before the evening’s entertainment. You can even order dessert and drinks which will be prepared in time for the first interval, so there’s no rush. With beautiful views of Kensington Gardens, the restaurant is located on the Rausing Circle and decked out with accents of lilac and grey, making it an elegant spot for a glass of pre-show champagne – but it’s worth taking the time to dine there. The prix fixe menu is extremely reasonable considering the quality of the cuisine. Highlights include the refreshingly tart sea bream ceviche to start and a delicately seared piece of Brill atop squid ink linguine in a mustard velouté. 2 courses for £37.
