Barbican

Silk Street, East Central London, London, EC2Y 8DS

Located in the heart of the City of London, the Barbican is Europe's largest Arts & Conference Centre, offering a wealth of conference, exhibition and banqueting space.

With venues accommodating from 10 to 1943 delegates, the Barbican provides a vibrant, creative and inspiring venue for both entertainment and business.

Barbican Hall & Theatre
Home to the London Symphony Orchestra, some of the world's most memorable performances have taken place on these stages. Equally, many leading business and educational organisations have hosted spectacular corporate events in both the Hall and Theatre.

• Barbican Hall
Capacity: 2000

With its superb technical resources, intelligent design and excellent acoustics, Barbican Hall is justifiably acknowledged as one of the country's finest auditoriums.

• Barbican Theatre
Capacity: 1156

With acoustics geared to the requirements of international production companies, the Barbican Theatre is the ideal performance environment.

In addition, both venues offer large foyer areas for registration and catering as well as extensive technical support.

Milton Court
Recently opened to great acclaim, Milton Court Concert Hall is an exciting addition to the venue hire opportunities at the Barbican. Part of a £90million development for the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, the hall boasts a maximum seat capacity of 608, world-class acoustic design and state-of-the-art technical capability, and is supported by a knowledgeable technical and events team.

Our Auditoriums
Take a look at the Barbican Frobisher Auditoriums and you'll find modern, comfortably appointed and well-equipped rooms that are perfect for the most sophisticated presentation. Thoughtfully designed with raked seating for good sight lines, each auditorium has air-conditioning and generous seating to ensure the comfort of delegates whilst maintaining their involvement. The cinema has a projection room and simultaneous translation booths and, unlike many other presentation cinemas, include the service of a dedicated technician. The Frobisher Auditoriums and Cinema will seat between 153 and 280 delegates each.

• Cinema 1
Capacity: 280 plus 2 wheelchair positions
Voted the most comfortable cinema in London

• Frobisher Auditorium 1
Frobisher Auditorium 1 is the ideal venue for conferences, meetings and training days.

• Frobisher Auditorium 2
For groups of 80 or more, Frobisher Auditorium 2 may be a suitable alternative to the conference suites.

Frobisher Rooms
Flexible, contemporary meeting spaces for up to 170 delegates

At the heart of the conference floor are two flat-floored suites with sound proofed sliding partitions providing generous space for larger meetings. Alternatively, the suites can be divided in to six separate rooms to provide the privacy and focused atmosphere required by smaller groups. To complement these facilities, a cloakroom and a reception area which provides a range of business services are located adjacent to the suites.

Frobisher Boardroom
Spacious, dedicated boardroom with at its centre a versatile 'Congress' table flanked by comfortable leather armchairs.

Corporate Hospitality
Entertaining is something the Barbican does rather well.

Since 1982, it has sustained an amazingly diverse, and universally-acclaimed, repertoire of theatre, concert and dance performances, cinema screenings and visuals arts exhibitions as well as being home to the London Symphony Orchestra.

The opportunity to see these outstanding presentations, combined with excellent banqueting facilities, makes the Barbican a uniquely inspiring venue for corporate hospitality.

Performances in the Barbican Hall or Barbican Theatre can all be combined with drinks receptions, dinners or banquets to make your evening both individual and memorable.

Barbican Gallery provides a colourful and stimulating environment for organisers wishing to maximise networking opportunities in a unique venue. Drinks and canapes can be served here or alternatively, exhibition viewings may be combined with a catering event in the Garden Room & Conservatory.

A tropical, indoor oasis, the conservatory is home to over 2,000 species of plants, quails, finches and koi carp and offers a unique venue within the Centre. Combined with the garden room, with its eucalyptus burr panelling and stunning views, these areas can be used for receptions, private dining and weddings.
