at the Royal Albert Hall

Friday 23 November 2018


Solent Events & Leisure has been joining over one million people every year since 2009, to marvel at the incredible lights, lasers & special effects that make the Classical Spectacular a unique experience. The atmosphere is electric!

Please join us for a rapturous welcome to the start of the festive season in 2018. If you have never experienced this truly uplifting show now’s your chance – but be QUICK, they are selling very fast already!

Once again over 250 performers will take to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall resounding to the worlds’ best classical music, including brand new pieces as well as all-time favourites such as Rule Britannia!, Jerusalem, Nessun Dorma, Land of Hope & Glory, and many more. You will be truly mesmerized!

From the very best classical music and state of the art technology to electrifying multi-coloured laser displays and our famous thundering finale to the music of the 1812 Overture – this performance promises to be bigger and even more thrilling than ever!  As usual we have brilliant seats in the raised stalls, positioned right in the centre, rows 2 to 11!

For a totally relaxed experience, we even book places in one of the Royal Albert Hall’s excellent restaurants, the Verdi Italian Kitchen, so you can enjoy a delicious lunch prior to the show …… and for the perfect end to a perfect day, we offer a glass of wine and nibbles during your journey home!

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.

Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.

Linda Hunt

Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery Tour
