Members Area

The Members Area is situated on Level 6 of Royal Festival Hall. Access is exclusive to Southbank Centre Full and Dual Members, Supporters Circles and Patrons. The Members Area offers WiFi, artwork from our Archive collection, Hayward Gallery Library and Folio Society, a full bar menu, with sandwiches, salads, pastries and more. With one of the best views of the Thames and a relaxed atmosphere, the Members Area is the perfect place for you and your guests to relax. 

During the day you are welcome to use laptops in the designated area, from 10am until 6:30pm. You will find this is a great space to work from, hold meetings, or study. At these same times, the other half of the area is for Members who wish to relax, read a book, meet friends for breakfast or for meetings not involving the use of laptops.

During the evening the Members Area transforms into a vibrant and welcoming social space where people like to meet and share a drink or two before attending a performance, or simply to gather with a few friends. While in the Members Area, don't hesitate to ask a member of our team for any assistance you may need.
