Royal Albert Hall

A view from the roof!

As a writer, inspiration comes from anywhere. During lockdown, I would cycle to work up Exhibition Road and along past the Royal Albert Hall.

Every morning and every evening, I’d cycle the hour it took to commute in my own little world, with my own little characters, on their adventures.

While I have been to the Royal Albert Hall before, I felt compelled to come again, post lockdown, to really help my imagination get the words on the paper.

It’s amazing to be here with almost no-one else!

My first time I was here, a new nanny friend had been given tickets for an Orchestral concert to Harry Potter (the second one- ps I hate snakes)

Sitting in the bar before the show, my lovely new friend ordered a bottle of pink Prosecco to which we thought we’d have to squirrel down quickly as we weren’t sure if we could take the bottle into the auditorium. When asking the bar staff, they said “it depends on your tickets” To our surprise, we were in a box, and therefore very welcome to take our bottle in. We also got lots of Harry Potter freebies!

I may have been super happy with the situation 😅

I would like to thank Andy for the wonderful tour, and answering my weird questions which out of context definitely make me sound a little crazy. I have also bought a new Royal Albert Hall note book to scribble down all my new found facts and ideas!

More to books…

So until my book comes out, why not check out this book as there really is #moretobooks than reading when it’s a fold- out history book!
