About our renovation project

Between September 2015 and January 2018, the gallery was closed for a two-year refurbishment project, the focus of which was the replacement of its 66 iconic pyramid rooflights. 

This project was made possible through the generous support of Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, trusts and foundations and over 50,000 individuals and Southbank Centre friends supporting our Let The Light In fundraising campaign. You can still help support the refurbishment of our Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room venues.
Support our campaign

What the Hayward brings to the party is a genuine independence of vision: a sense that the crowd is being led, not followed. Hayward shows don’t preach, accuse or bang the drum. They dart about the perimeters of art, making clever connections and delightful observations.
Waldemar Januszczak, The Sunday Times
