Royal Festival Hall, London

When I went: 19 May 2015, 14 January 2016, 12 May 2016, 14 October 2016, 14 January 2017, 16 May 2018

Shows seen there: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Stravinsky ballets concert, Rob Delaney (Meat)The Planets concertProkofiev’s Romeo and JulietBeethoven / Stravinsky concert

Size: Fairly big

Typical price: Fairly reasonable (up to around £60 for good stalls seats)

Special points: Comedy gigs and classical music concerts

Where to eat beforehand: Skylon


Royal Festival Hall is a great venue on the Southbank, near to lovely restaurants and bars and Waterloo station, and flexible in terms of the concerts it hosts. I’ve seen a good mix of classical music, comedy and musicals there and would like to see more. Plus, as Rob Delaney pointed out, the boxes in the concert hall are reminiscent of the Galactic Senate from Star Wars, which is obviously awesome.
