Southbank Centre

The Southbank Centre first came into existence in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, and has since gone onto become the largest single-run arts venue in the UK. The dynamic range of festival programmes cover the breadth of arts and culture, from traditional forms through to contemporary, experimental expressionism. Millions of people interact with artists from all over the world, and the site attempts to lead the artistic vanguard every year.

Three performance venues make up the centre: the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room, accompanied by the Hayward Gallery. Thousands of events take place within these spaces each year, held in high esteem by both the critics and the public.
