Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery are closed on 21 September 2015 for two years of essential repair and maintenance so that the buildings are fit for future generations to enjoy. During this time, Southbank Centre’s classical programme continues at Royal Festival Hall with chamber performances taking place at St John’s Smith Square. Hayward Gallery will focus on its extensive touring programme until the buildings reopen in 2017. The Undercroft skate park will remain open throughout the works along with the Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden (during the summer months).
