Hire Hayward Gallery

2018 not only sees Hayward Gallery celebrating its 50th anniversary, but for the first time ever, the gallery is available to hire exclusively for private views.  Restored to its original appearance after two years of extensive renovations, the gallery's iconic pyramid roof lights flood the space with natural light.

For an exciting and inspiring breakfast or reception venue, Hayward Gallery is second to none. Guests can enjoy delicious catering from one of Southbank Centre’s approved caterers while admiring world-class art, in a light and airy setting.

Hayward Gallery is widely recognised for its challenging and thought-provoking exhibitions and is proud to host the first major UK retrospective of acclaimed German photographer Andreas Gursky, in January 2018.
