Purcell Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall

Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall

Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery closed on 21 September 2015 for two years of essential repair and maintenance so that the buildings are fit for future generations to enjoy.

We continue to present a packed programme of festivals and shows across our site while these buildings are closed.

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). For more information, refer to the ‘About Us’ page.
