SORRY - WE'RE ALL SOLD OUT! Cancellation wait-list only

Solent Events & Leisure has been joining over one million people every year since 2006,except in 2020, to marvel at the incredible lights, lasers & special effects that make the Classical Spectacular a unique experience. The atmosphere is electric!

Perhaps you would not normally be thinking as far ahead as November when we have just sprung into Spring, but because of the unprecedented closure of theatres in 2020, seats are selling fast again!  

I’m certain this wonderful musical extravaganza will be back with a vengeance! Its pomp and ceremony will be welcomed with even more appreciation than usual to kick-start the 2021 Christmas season.

It is ALWAYS a sell-out, so booking your seats NOW,  should be a priority. Those who were booked for the 2020 performance have automatically been transferred – and remember, they have been paid in full! This will be our 15th consecutive year, so we do know what a fantastic experience it is!

The UK’s most popular classical show has performed every November at the Royal Albert Hall for over 30 years, completely selling-out for each of the four days.

So once again, please join us  for a rapturous welcome to the start of the ‘2021 festive season’. If you have not experienced this truly uplifting show now’s your chance – but be QUICK, as previously stated, they sell very quickly. Whatever happens in the world at the start of  in 2021, we’re sure you will need an uplift by the end of it!

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 just as thrilling as ever!  

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 if you wish, 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!
