Royal Festival Hall Auditorium

The Royal Festival Hall is the centrepiece of Southbank Centre, hosting events from orchestral and pop concerts to conferences and graduation ceremonies. The main focus of the recent 2-year refurbishment, the Hall benefits from a state-of-the-art stage and rig, a large number of back-of-house areas and many of the original 1950s features.

Also within the Royal Festival Hall building are a number of additional reception rooms and foyer spaces that can be used for breakout rooms, catering, entertaining etc when the auditorium is hired, or hired on their own for smaller events.

Auditorium capacity: fixed raked seating for 2500.

The Royal Festival Hall stage is now licensed for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies.  More...
