What better place to hold this event than the Royal Albert Hall with its 240 years of grand entertainment history.  If you have never attended a concert here then its time that you did, the hall is an amazing auditorium.

Located in Kensington in central London, the Royal Albert Hall is easily accessible and has many hotels within a 10 minute walk.
