Comprising of three buildings - Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room, and Hayward Gallery - Southbank Centre offers a number of events spaces suitable for a vast array of occasions.
Three fantastic world-class auditoria are available for private hire; as well as a number of smaller events spaces, from mid-sized meeting rooms to our spacious and airy roof pavilions, which make particularly romantic wedding venues.
From the grandeur of our famous buildings, to the intimate surroundings of our private rooftop pavilions, our flexible spaces provide you with a vibrant meeting and entertaining space with stunning views of London and excellent transport links. Whether you are planning an AGM or an awards ceremony, a wine tasting or a wedding, Southbank Centre has a venue for your event.
