VENUE HIRE


Our venues for your events Southbank Centre is located in central London and is a 17-acre arts centre made up of Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery. It is nestled in the midst of London's most vibrant cultural quarter on the South Bank of the River Thames. These heritage buildings are home to world-class concert halls, auditoria and stages that have hosted some of the world’s greatest artists and thinkers, including Michelle Obama, Olivia Colman and David Bowie. Audiences are treated to thousands of live events, performances and exhibitions across the site each year. In our Grade I-listed Royal Festival Hall, as well as the world-class auditorium you can find more intimate venues, including our rooftop pavilions with fabulous river views that offer stunning settings for meetings, receptions and dinners. Our award-winning brutalist Queen Elizabeth Hall is home to various venues which offer clients the opportunity to host events from the informal and intimate to creative and spectacular. The experienced team deliver events of all scales, including award ceremonies, premieres, dinners, parties, conferences and meetings. Capacities for our spaces range from 20 to 2,500 people.
