Royal Festival Hall
With its riverside setting, central location, and impressive cultural history, Royal Festival Hall is a venue for all occasions. Part of the Southbank Centre, which includes the Hayward Gallery and Queen Elizabeth Hall, the glorious Royal Festival Hall is located at the heart of the vibrant arts quarter which also features the National Theatre, BFI Southbank, Tate Modern, Somerset House and Shakespeare's Globe. Created in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, Royal Festival Hall draws on its heritage as a festival site, with performances and activities taking place throughout the year. In 2007 the Hall reopened following a 2 year refurbishment project, which brought the building up to modern standards of access, technological excellence and comfort while retaining the iconic 1950s aesthetics of the original design.
From the grandeur of the Royal Festival Hall auditorium to the airy feel and incredible views of the Weston and St Pauls Roof Pavilions, through to the intimate surroundings of the Sunley Pavilion and the various meeting and function rooms, Southbank Centre offers a wide variety of stylish spaces. Perfect for dinners, parties, awards ceremonies, conferencing, meetings and weddings, Royal Festival Hall has a space for any event.
