Royal Festival Hall

Home to Philharmonia and the London Philharmonic, graced with a landmark pipe organ, and the venue from which Bowie first said "I'm Ziggy," Royal Festival Hall epitomizes the range of events a concert hall must serve. Variability is essential to support the widely varied repertoire. The meticulous renovation brought orchestral sound to world standards and kept the magic for rock and jazz, too.
