  The terracota-coloured Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s favourite concert venues. While it remains most famous for classical music , it also holds rock and pop concerts, sports events, and award ceremonies. Now, you can add Hollywood’s Golden Age themed events.

singin-in-the-rain   The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Singin’ in the Rain by performing the iconic soundtrack while the re-mastered musical is played on the big screen. The score includes songs like Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes, and the classic title track. Singing’ in the Rain will screen on March 8th at 7:30p.

   The Royal Albert Hall commemorates the death of Prince Albert in 1861. Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone in 1867, and it opened four years later in 1871. The famed location is in Kensington.

Currently, one can catch Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, The Lion King, Wicked, and Jersey Boys, among others, along the West End.
