Royal Festival Hall information
The Royal Festival Hall is one of the best places for catching world-music artists and hosts the fantastic Meltdown festival. It reopened in Summer 2007 after two years of renovations. Allies and Morrison architects worked on the £91-million renovations by using the existing 1950s materials – concrete, leather and wood – to superb effect. The sound is fantastic, the programming impeccable and there are frequent free gigs in the wonderfully expansive foyer.
