Don't waste your money. I have never seen such boring and stupid show. Some clown's pantomimes seam come from Sovet Union, they are as old as my grandmother. Not funny at all. Good advertising but nothing more.
Saturday evening was the time the place was this amazing venue with so much to so see. A completely varied mix of ages, relaxed and happy atmosphere. We relaxed and had some drinks prior to moving on to have dinner elsewhere. Recommend for any occasion...More
Quite apart from all the wonderful concerts that take place in the concert hall here, I just want to say that I think this is the most fabulous public space. You can sit and relax, meet friends, get a drink or something to eat, pop...More
I love going to concerts here. The acoustics are wonderful and the theatre is comfortable and spacious. The seats have ample legroom between them and the auditorium is warm in winter without being too hot. Lots of space to circulate outside of the auditorium.
Although we have lived in London for many years this was our first visit to the Festival Hall since Tripadvisor started.
We ate at the excellent Skylon restaurant and were ready in time for our concert of modern music played the the RPO
This Sun 18th Nov had a number of events under the London Jazz Festival banner, many for free, such as the Jazz Mingus concerts - see my pic - and there are many more over the next week on the website. Not only are these...More
A wonderful show, not performed by a look a like but by a person who appreciated Frank Sinatra's music, Matthew Ford. From time to time dueting with Victoria Hamilton-Barrit. Bringing a number of tunes to life, especially My Way, were Christopher Burrell and Emma Burrell....More
Attended Concert of Remembrance. Sat in D14 stalls. Good value. Didn't have overview of orchestra but I could see at least half of them. Spacious hall, good location, walked across from Embankment. Staff friendly and helpful.
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and
festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
