Giants Live: The Strongman Classic

After 120 years, professional weightlifting returns to the Royal Albert Hall. The 2021 Strongman Classic features five competitive events plus world record attempts and more.


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!
