London Welsh Festival of Male Voice Choirs


Saturday 18th October 2014

I've been to the Royal Albert Hall for a performance so i knew the facilities were ok, but that was a few years ago.

Mum had always wanted to see a Welsh Male Voice choir, the closest she came to it before was listening to the national anthems before the rugby on tv!

Having performed a quick google search i found that they were performing in London on the 18th October - just 3 days before her birthday - bonus!  I called the box office, booked the tickets and was told i also receive free on site parking right by the entrance.

On the day itself we arrived in plenty of time, found the carpark from the excellent directions, and was met by a lady who unclipped a chain and directed me to my parking space.  Access to the hall itself was via seemless ramps, with lifts taking me to the relevant floor.  After a gin & tonic in the roomy bar we made our way to the excellent seats via a "comfort" break.  The bathroom was very roomy, drop down bar to one side, lowered sink and dyson hand dryer.

The concert itself was superb, the mixture of songs, hymns, readings and the compare made it a truely enjoyable evening that i would fully recommend to both wheelrchair and non wheelchair users.
