If you’re looking to enjoy the ambience of a world class venue in the company of some of the world’s best arts and entertainment acts, the Royal Albert Hall is the place to be. Here we take a look ahead at some of June’s highlights at the London venue.
Bruce Forsyth starts the month off on June 3rd, entertaining the crowds in his own inimitable style. The veteran entertainer is joined by an array of talented musicians and will perform songs from his album, These Are My Favourites.
From one legend to another, Elvis Costello & The Impostors return to the Royal Albert Hall from June 4th to 6th, and he’s bringing his ‘Spectacular Spinning Songbook’ with him. The innovative show sees members of the audience spin a giant wheel to determine which of his hits Costello will play next.
In the Elgar Room on June 9th the audience can enjoy An Evening with James Rhodes. The acclaimed pianist will be sharing not just his music but an assortment of anecdotes as well, in an intimate performance. If you’re after something more sumptuous meanwhile, Swan Lake will be performed in the round from June 12th– 23rd. Performed by the English National Ballet, it’s sure to impress.
An altogether different but no less impressive type of performance will take place in the Elgar Room on June 17th, courtesy of beatboxer Reeps One. The UK beatboxing champion will be dazzling the audience with his unique vocal stylings, as well as sharing insights into the artform.
