CLASSICAL SPECTACULAR

Sunday 22 November 2020 - matinee
ROYAL ALBERT HALL - POPULAR CLASSIC …… AFTER CLASSIC .... AFTER CLASSIC!

Maybe you are not thinking as far ahead as November this year, but we are!  No matter what is going on in the world, this wonderful musical extravaganza is ALWAYS a sell-out. This will be our 15th consecutive year, so we do know! 

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

The UK’s most popular classical show has returned every November to the Royal Albert Hall for over 30 years with sell-out performances for teach of the four days.

Please join us once again for a rapturous welcome to the start of the ‘festive season’ in 2020. If you have not experienced this truly uplifting show now’s your chance – but be QUICK, as when they go on sale in March they sell very quickly. Whatever is happening in the world, you will need an uplift!

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 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!
