Southbank Centre is an arts and performance organisation comprised of three main spaces - Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Purcell Room, and the Hayward Gallery.

Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery are closed on 21 September 2015 for two years of essential repair and maintenance, to ensure the buildings are fit for future generations to enjoy.

During this time, Southbank Centre’s Classical programme continues at Royal Festival Hall, with chamber music performances taking place at St John’s Smith Square. Hayward Gallery will focus on its extensive touring programme until the buildings reopen in 2017.

Royal Festival Hall opened in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain and is at the heart of the Southbank Centre. The RFH welcomes orchestras, operas and contemporary music from around the world.

The RFH was joined in 1967 by the Queen Elizabeth Hall which, as the second largest venue, houses both big names as well as emerging artists. The Hayward Gallery is situated behind the Queen Elizabeth Hall and has been home to some of the world's most adventurous and innovative artists. 

Highlights of Southbank Centre's huge programme is its many festivals, free art exhibitions and myriad of muscial performances, details of which can be found below.
