Last Friday I had the amazing opportunity of making free use of a box at the Royal Albert Hall. The gorgeous Imelda May was playing and I hot-stepped it down to London straight after work.
I have always wanted to go the Royal Albert Hall. I marvelled at this colossal building as a child visiting London, and to finally get the chance to visit?! Wowzers. This is one incredible venue.We were lead up to the second tier and a smartly dressed man held the keys to our box. Inside there was a large table in front of an ornate mirror which we used to hold our drinks. Opposite this was a long coat rack. And out towards the auditorium were 5 seats. I sat at the front of the box and looked down to see a stone carving of a crown. We were only sat above the Royal Box! (which I later found a certain Pippa Middleton sitting in – she didn’t clap).
Imelda May was perfect. At times she had me on the verge of tears as she sang about her love for her husband or her monther. And at other times she had me up on my feet dancing to funky rockabilly awesomeness. Plus, she was totally preggers! Yet, still she permormed a show with great energy. It was a wonderful way to spend an evening.
Have you been to any gigs, concerts, music-type affairs recently?
