At the end of this month, Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room will reopen after being closed for 18 months during the pandemic.

The 200-capacity space will host a series of events as part of its autumn/winter programme beginning on 30 September.

Icelandic musician Eydís Evensen will play the first classical performance of the season on 20 October, and on 12 October Sharleen Spiteri from Texas will host an edition of Classic Album Sundays.

Lucy Noble, Artistic and Commercial Director at the Royal Albert Hall said, "We couldn’t be happier to reopen the Elgar Room to full capacity with such an eclectic line-up which includes the brightest new talents across jazz, classical and contemporary music. This space is about bringing through the next generation of talent and we’re thrilled to get back to doing just that"
