120 years after the Royal Albert Hall held its last professional weightlifting competition, we’re super excited to be bringing strength sports back to the place it all began – the world’s most famous stage!
Feats of strength were first witnessed at the Hall in 1881 and reached a peak in 1901 with the Great Competition – judged by the one and only Eugen Sandow and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The 2021 Strongman Classic will be the Hall’s first professional weightlifting competition since then!
As a World’s Strongest Man qualifying event, The Strongman Classic will feature five competitive events, drawing inspiration from the Hall’s earliest generation of weightlifting, bringing an old-time strongman edge with historic lifts likely to include the Pillars of Hercules, Circus Dumbbell and legendary stone carries. PLUS! World record attempts and all the adrenaline-filled action Giants Live is known for!
