I first experienced the Royal Albert Hall as a young 19 year old student from Germany on a school trip to London. We heard that if you queue up early enough on the day of the performance you can get a 'standing ticket' on the highest circle. We got in to Shakespeare if I recall correctly. After spending an evening in the Hall, it was clear to me that I had to return to this magnificient venue. Unbelievably it took me more than 30 years to achieve this. But in January 2020 I celebrated my 50th birthday in London with a visit to the Royal Albert Hall to see Luzia from Cirque de Soleil with my wife and daughter. I almost cried being back in this wonderful place after such a long time, and now with the ones I love most. I will not wait another 30 years for my third visit!
