The Southbank Centre has taken the decision to require face coverings to be worn in our buildings from Wed 1 December as an additional measure. We want to ensure that we’re doing all we can to help keep our audiences, staff and artists safe at this time. Find out more

    Press tickets

    We offer a limited number of press tickets for most performances and events at the Southbank Centre. Generally, we give priority to journalists reviewing events.

    It’s not always up to us who can have a ticket – for some events, the decision is made by promoters who don’t work for the Southbank Centre.


    Press images

    Our Press Team manages an extensive library of photography and video that illustrate the diversity and creativity of our organisation and the artists who perform at our venues. Please contact the Press Team if you would like images of the Southbank Centre, and specific past and future events and festivals.
