Refurbishing the pyramids on the Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre

Let The Light In

Our Let The Light In refurbishment project will restore our iconic 1960s arts venues Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery to world-class standards when they reopen in early 2018. 

Support Let The Light In today and help our worn-out buildings to once again be vibrant cultural spaces, but upgraded for the 21st century. Spaces that mean we can work with the finest established and emerging artists from around the world, and that give everyone the opportunity to experience and enjoy the arts and everything that Southbank Centre has to offer.

Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden

Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden was created in 2011 for the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Festival of Britain.

It was built, and is maintained by, a group of volunteers from Grounded Ecotherapy who have all experienced homelessness, mental health or substance-abuse problems. 

Your support could help Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden continue to flourish as a free public space for everyone in the heart of London, welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors and community programmes each year, while also supporting our volunteer gardeners.

Support Women of the World festival

This year's WOW-Women of the World London festival was a great success, with more than 73,000 people attending over the six days and 10,540 tickets are sold for the talks, debates and performances.

Since its launch in 2011 on the centenary of International Women's Day, WOW has grown internationally, with 15 festivals on five continents to date.

We are delighted the festival is continuing to grow, and your support means we can continue to provide a platform for conversations about gender equality to take place around the world and to celebrate everything that women and girls are achieving.
