    (MOC) The Royal Albert Hall with working photos

    Thanks for flagging this. Just sorted it and photos should come up now. Will add video too.
  2. IMG-20200718-WA0037 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Apologies, I am still getting my head around adding photos or hotlinks to Eurobricks. Now on Youtube https://www.flickr.com/gp/189396852@N04/M022um The Royal Albert Hall is situated in South West London and is one of the most internationally recognised buildings. Designed to promote the arts and sciences it has since 1871 maintained its hectic schedule of rock gigs, classical music concerts, community and school concerts, comedy, circus, lectures, film premieres and sports, including tennis and even boxing. It is the Rolls Royce of village halls!

Each half of the hall can be lifted out to access a basic representation of the loading bay, car park, backstage and arena bars. 20200718_210251 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211952 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211130 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Further details include the south steps with John Durham's statue of Prince Albert presiding over representations of the four continents and the tree outside stage door planted in tribute to Mario Lanza. IMG-20200718-WA0041 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Part dolls house, part Russian doll this basically consists of 5 components (base, both halves of the exterior, auditorium and roof) slotting inside the other. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/183167bd-8302-4cbc-bf1d-42f26e96a9dd/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs Please support on Ideas if you like. Many thanks. 20200718_211001 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I had been stockpiling dark red and tan Lego for some time even though I was too busy to contemplate building the Hall. Then with Covid 19 and the lock down I suddenly had no excuse. The Royal Albert Hall is very close to my heart: I work there and to see it shut and empty is beyond heart breaking. IMG-20200718-WA0032 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I finished this just as the 2020 Proms started and this is a model to celebrate not just a venue but live music the world over. Wherever you are please look after your arts venues. They will be the last parts of the economy to be reopened and need our help. 20200718_205647 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_214133 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Please do go to the Royal Albert Hall's website if you want to donate but in the meantime I hope you like the model. Please tell your friends. I am barely on social media so fee free to share photos of it. I might need a piggy back to get this seen. IMG-20200718-WA0038 by Brney Rayfield, on Flickr
