The Royal Albert Hall has a series of socially distanced events planned for its Christmas season, including carol concerts, a performance of Handel’s Messiah and a run of The Nutcracker with Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Trotter’s organ recital, taking place on Friday 20 November (the night before the Royal Albert Hall’s 150th anniversary), will be the venue’s first in-person concert since it closed on 17 March. The programme will include works by Bach.
