Elgar Room

On October 14, 2009, the Royal Albert Hall opened the doors to a new venue, the transformed Elgar Room — which once saw Dame Judi Dench and Sir Laurence Olivier perform — to the tune of £1 million.

The Elgar Room now incorporates built-in technical facilities and flexibility to match any event requirement — from late-night and intimate gigs to after-show parties, comedy nights, and cabaret and theater performances.

The original floor-to-ceiling windows were restored as the room's raised flooring was removed to create one large space, increasing its maximum capacity to 350 standing and to 110 when used as a restaurant.

A Meyer Sound UPJ speaker system is augmented with EM Acoustics monitors and subs, and QSC amps. Visiting engineers will find a stocked control rack that includes a Meyer Sound PSU, Tascam CD player, Shure receiver/transmitter/splitter/antenna, and gear from Biamp, Emo (distribution panel) and Ampetronic (loop amp). Shure mics are also on hand.
