The Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s most acclaimed venues, offering an eclectic mix of theatre, music, film, dance and much more besides – all designed to enliven the spirits and encourage a love of the arts in attendees. This June promises one of the most intriguing line-ups in some time, with a roster of events covering everything from movie-making to space travel and plenty in-between. Here’s our round-up of some of the best events to check out during your stay in the city…
Moomins and the Comet – Live Re-Score
3rd June 2018
The release of the UK TV version of The Moomins is restored by one of the original composers, Graeme Miller in this live musical event. This is a great chance for fans of Tove Jansson’s classic children’s stories to experience them in a new and immersive way, which is perfect for all the family to enjoy while visiting Kensington London Hotels. Breathtaking and charming, this could even convert a few new Moomin fans to the magic and wonder of this most Scandinavian form of creative, narrative storytelling – and help carry these stories over into a new generation of children and adults alike.
Gladiator – Live in Concert
23rd June 2018
The Royal Albert Hall will be playing host to this fantastic evening celebration of Ridley Scott’s classic film this June, with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra performing Hans Zimmer’s famous score alongside a big-screen showing of the film itself. The event has previously taken place in front of sold-out audiences in both 2014 and 2016, and in 2018 the result is sure to be the same! Great for both established film fans and those seeking an evening out with a difference, this is definitely one to look into during your stay at the Park Grand Kensington Hotel.
