Barbican Centre

Barbican Centre
   The Barbican Centre was set up in 1982 to be both a national centre for the Arts and also to cater for the constituency of its immediate locality in the heart of London. It houses the largest of the City’s lending libraries and its main Children’s Library. The Royal Shakespeare Company has a full programme at the Barbican Theatre, while the Barbican Art Gallery has an outstanding programme of temporary exhibitions including photographs by George Rodger, Cecil Beaton, Karsch, Bill Brandt and the Hulton Deutsch Collection. It currently attracts over 150,000 visitors a year. The Barbican’s two Exhibition Halls offer over 4,000 square metres of net exhibition space on two levels while the Barbican Hall seats 2,000 delegates, has three presentation cinemas, and numerous smaller conference suites.
