Royal Festival Hall

Southbank Centre, London  SE1 8XX

The Royal Festival Hall is a 2,500-seat concert, dance and talks venue within the Southbank Centre in London.   It is a Grade I listed building, the first post-war building to become so protected.   The hall was built as part of the Festival of Britain for London County Council and was officially opened on 3 May 1951.    It has undergone alterations and renovations on more than one occasion, most recently in 2007, which included significant changes to the acoustic properties and seating inside the auditorium as well as to the ancillary public facilities outside the auditorium.
