The Barbican Centre

As the largest performing arts centre of its kind in Europe, the Barbican Centre’s reputation in the art world is second to none. Those who enjoy classical music, contemporary bands, theatre, classic film events and art exhibitions, regularly head down to the Barbican to pick from their ever evolving roster of acts.

The centre was established in 1982 and has three performance halls: Barbican Hall, which can hold just under 2,000 people, Barbican Theatre, which has a capacity of just over 1,000 seats, and The Pit, a much more compact 200-seat theatre venue. In addition, visitors will find 3 cinema screens, an art related library, restaurants, conference halls and trade exhibition spaces.

    Photographs From The Edge

    Until Sunday 27th May 2018

    "Another Kind Of Life: Photography On The Margins" looks at how artists and photographers often seek inspiration from those who live on the fringes of society. There will be over 300 images on display provided by 20 photographers, stretching from 1950 right through to today. Some of the themes the exhibition touched upon include gender, youth culture, drugs and addiction and cultural minorities.
