Exhibition

Every 27 September

Part of Heritage & Archive

Previously unseen archives selected from a single date across the decades showcase the workings behind the UK’s largest arts centre.

Every day since 3 May 1951, we have made plans, booked artists, put on performances and created unforgettable experiences for audiences at Southbank Centre. And we have kept a record of every one of those days.

There is nothing out of the ordinary about 27 September, but our records of this date document the intricate planning process that goes into each and every event – which becomes a shared memory following its moment of exposure with an audience.

This Archive Studio display reveals the scale and variety of our past performance programme, using a wealth of information from our stored collections.

Produced by Southbank Centre Archive and LYN Atelier
