Are all of the above to be done between 4 pm and bedtime?

I am a little confused - do you just want to walk past the Royal Albert Hall and the college of music? The Albert Hall is a lovely bldg - but anytime during your visit if you are in Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens you will be just across the street and it would be very easy to take a look at the exterior of the bldg. There not much reason to make a special trip to just see the outside of it.

Is there some reason are you going to both Sticky Fingers and Bistro Bannitos the same evening?

Also "Picadilly Circus til bedtime" - Picadilly Circus is a good place for a photo op of the neon billboards, but it is not a place to hang out (at least for anyone over about 20)

We can change Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Academy of music to another day. I am concerned that it will be dark now.

As far as sticky fingers goes, we just want to stop for a drink.

What time of year is your trip? If it's in the winter, then it will be dark outside by 4 in the afternoon.
Personally, I don't get much out of Picadilly Circus -- it's just a huge traffic intersection. My kids, however, love the nearby Trocadero, which is a five-story video game wonderland.
Happy planning!
