Southbank Centre is the UK’s largest arts centre occupying a 21 acre festival site that sits in the midst of London’s most vibrant cultural quarter on the southern bank of the Thames. The site is home to the much loved Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Hayward Gallery, Poetry Library and Arts Council Collection of visual arts as well as all the spaces in between, outdoors and indoors. We have an extraordinary creative and architectural history which began with the 1951 Festival of Britain when the site was the focal point for a nationwide celebration of culture and the arts of all kinds.
Today our artistic policy is designed around a year-round cycle of festivals. Our festivals are based on a range of themes and subjects which span all art forms. They feature music, performance, dance, literature and visual arts and are surrounded by a rich programme of learning and participation. Southbank Centre passionately believes the arts have the power to transform lives.
Our vision is to be the world’s most inspiring centre for the arts by making music, visual arts, dance, performance and literature available to all and to create the world’s leading festival site offering millions of people the opportunity to enjoy, learn and take part. Diversity and inclusion are vital to all aspects of our activities - from the breadth of our artistic programmes, through attracting audiences from the widest range of communities to the diverse people within our own workforce, we seek to reflect our place as a local, national and global centre for the arts for everyone.
- To offer life enriching encounters between audiences and the world’s great and emerging artists in music, visual arts, dance, performance and literature.
- To enable anyone to experience the excitement of exploring their own creativity and artistry through our far-reaching programme of learning and participation.
- To welcome the world to the unrivalled visitor experience of our riverside site, with its iconic buildings and history and its continuous sense of festival.
- To demonstrate successfully that the demanding requirements of art-making can live happily beside commercial entrepreneurship and profit both. – less
