Artists have been asked to design a limited-edition label to showcase the diverse culture of the Royal Albert Hall.

It comes as officials get ready to celebrate its 150th year during 2021 and into 2022 with a series of events, performances and commissions.

Craig Hassall, chief executive of the Royal Albert Hall, said: “The hall has been a meeting place – and an inspiration – for artists of all kinds since we opened in 1871 and we can’t wait to see how contemporary creatives interpret our diverse history.”
