The Royal Choral Society will be giving a special Good Friday performance of Handel's "Messiah" at the Royal Albert Hall. This tradition has been in existence for more than 125 years, making the Royal Choral Society the world's most experienced choir at singing Handel's masterpiece.

The terracota-coloured Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s favourite concert venues. Whilst it remains most famous for classical music and the annual Prom concerts, it also holds rock and pop concerts, sports events and award ceremonies.
