Venue of the Month: Southbank Centre
14 Dec 2018 | Kate Bassett
Home to three grand Auditoriums within walking distance of London Waterloo Station and the London Eye, Southbank Centre has the perfect space for your conference, award ceremony, performance or screening. Understandably each Auditorium has limited availability in 2019, listed below with further information on each space - contact the Southbank Events team on 0207 921 0702 or by email to discuss your event in detail.
Royal Festival Hall, pictured above, is a Grade I listed space with seated capacity of 2,500, and plenty of breakout spaces, catering areas or VIP rooms across the Hall available for use.
Hire availability - 8am-11pm on Wednesday 13th February or Wednesday 13th March 2019
Following a three year restoration project, Queen Elizabeth Hall has recently reopened and offers seating for 916 guests with the Foyer entrance available as a catering space for lectures or pre-performance drinks reception.
Hire availability - Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th, Friday 15th March 2019, and Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd May 2019
The Purcell Room is considered the lesser known of the three spaces, although with a seated capacity of almost 300 guests, this is the ideal Auditorium for smaller conferences or award ceremonies, with an adjoining newly-redesigned foyer for breakout areas.
Hire availability - Friday 8th, Tuesday 26th February 2019 and Monday 4th, Tuesday 5th, Thursday 21st March 2019
