Venue Hire

As well as being a world-class arts venue, Southbank Centre has a variety of auditoria, rooms and spaces that can be hired for a wide range of events, including conferences, AGMs, product launches, graduation ceremonies, receptions, dinners and weddings.

For further information on private hires at Southbank Centre please contact the events team on 020 7921 0702 or email events@southbankcentre.co.uk.

From September 2015, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery are closing for two years while Southbank Centre undertakes its Festival Wing refurbishment project. After nearly five decades of intensive use, this project is updating the facilities for audiences and artists to world-class standards, in order to keep the buildings open for future generations. The buildings are due to reopen in autumn 2017. 

Please note: all enquiries to hire the auditoria for public performances should be directed to the Artistic Rentals team. For information regarding artistic hire rates or to make a proposal, please contact the team on 020 7921 0710 or email artisticrentals@southbankcentre.co.uk
