The Show Must Go On at Albert Hall, City Centre, 17–31 October 2020, from £27.75 - Book now

After seven months of hibernation, music and entertainment are returning to the grandeur of Albert Hall in the form of The Show Must Go On – a series of fun-loving events staged in a socially-distanced environment.

Kicking off the party on 17th October is Crazy P, an electronic group from Nottingham who fuse slinky underground disco, throbbing house and shimmering pop to make dance music with a heart and soul.

On 30th October, BBC 6 Music’s Craig Charles will be manning the decks, exploring the best in funk and soul from the roots of black music through to the current club sounds. The following night, Scottish DJ Paul Taylor will host his much-loved Retro night, a joyous celebration of classic house.

As part of the series, Albert Hall will also be hosting a series of Musik Halle events, featuring Bavarian-style bier, brats and haus music. On 31st October there will also be a Drag Brunch, with food and drinks served up by Albert’s Schloss and debauched entertainment served up by local Queens.

All of these events will adhere to government guidelines around social distancing. They’ll be fully seated with table service and a digital bar, and there’s an option to add drinks packages when you buy your tickets. That means you’ll be able to arrive to a full table of booze ready and waiting – joyous.

It’s great to see Albert Hall back in action after lying dormant for so long. Though the layout will be different to what we’re used to, the team promise the same electric atmosphere and production – only now you don’t have to battle your way to the bar.

All in all, The Show Must Go On sounds like a slice of light-hearted joy – and God doesn’t 2020 need that.
