Uncover the role of women in Britain over the Royal Albert Hall’s history, and look to the future with the Women and the Hall season.
Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918, a series of screenings, talks and performances led by an all-female line-up highlight the role of women at the iconic concert hall.
From hosting more than 20 Suffragette rallies to providing a platform for inspirational female figures, the venue takes a retrospective look at remarkable moments from its 147-year history and charts present day and future changes.
