Festival Wing Update


We are pleased to announce the opening of a free exhibition in the Royal Festival Hall foyer, detailing plans of urgent renewal work that must be carried out on Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery. This essential repair and maintenance work is being carried out to ensure that we can keep our buildings open and continue to offer festivals, art and learning for everyone 364 days a year, long into the future.

The exhibition is open until 19 October, every day from 10am to 11pm and full details are also available as a downloadable pdf.

If you would like to comment on our essential repair and maintenance project, please email us at festivalwing@southbankcentre.co.uk

From 29 September – 19 October
Open every day from 10am – 11pm
