It’s one of Britain’s most iconic buildings. The Annuals Proms concerts have been held there since 1941, and the English National Ballet regularly glide across its boards. Muhammad Ali plied his trade there three times, Shirley Bassey 45 times, Eric Clapton 211 times.
Now, arguably the most jaw-dropping Christmas present for the individual who has everything has become available, in the form of a private ten-seater Grand Tier box (£2,500,000, royalalberthall.com), located on the western side of the auditorium close to the numerous bars and restaurants within a building opened by Queen Victoria in 1871.
As well as access to around 60 per cent of all concerts which take place here – and there are usually around 400 annually – the holder of this uber-prime slice of London retail estate (even by South Kensington’s standards) automatically becomes a Member of the Corporation of the Hall of Arts and Sciences, the body established by Royal Charter to hold the Hall in trust for the Nation.
