Since May 1871, The Royal Albert Hall has become one of the world’s most desirable venues. Built to fulfil the vision of Prince Albert (Queen Victoria’s consort) of a central hall used to promote understanding and appreciation of the Arts and Sciences, surrounded by museums and places of learning, the Hall has been affectionately titled “The Nation’s Village Hall”.
Its architecture is spectacular and as prestigious as the events the hall has been hosting each year since its inauguration by Queen Victoria. From opera and ballet to classical music and more recently pop music and film premieres: more than 350 events are held there each year. The Classic Brit Awards - for which RAYMOND WEIL is also a timing partner - have been hosted there since 2000.
RAYMOND WEIL has always placed music at the centre of its universe and seen it as a force that brings people together and changes the world. This vision shared by the Swiss watchmaker and the prestigious venue has led to a partnership where RAYMOND WEIL has become the Official Timing Partner of the Royal Albert Hall.More Information
