About the Barbican

Seating capacity: 1,943

A world-class arts and learning organisation, the Barbican is famous for pushing boundaries in all major art forms - dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts - and has an excellent creative learning programme.

The Barbican is one of the most significant pieces of Brutalist architecture in not just London, but arguably the world. Like the National Theatre, it’s a love-it-or-loath-it building, with some people thinking it’s an eyesore and others declaring it a modern masterpiece. Either way, there’s no denying its ambition and impressive scale.

Chamberlin, Powell and Bon designed the venue to completely regenerate an area of London devastated by the Second World War. It took more than a decade to build. Queen Elizabeth II opened it in 1982, and it is now a Grade II listed building.

Barbican Hall welcomes the world's top musicians in both classical and contemporary music to its concert hall. It is home to its resident orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and its associate orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
