The Royal Festival Hall is the main concert venue in London’s Southbank Centre.
Classical music recitals are always on the agenda, with regular performances by the Philharmonic and London Philharmonic. You can also find many jazz, ballet and world music pieces.
The building was opened in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain complex. The stark exterior has been much derided by architects, but the spacious interior houses a 3,000 seat auditorium.
