The Barbican Centre


Art Galleries

The Barbican Arts Centre is the largest multi-arts centre in the whole of Europe. It is also home to the globally renowned London Symphony Orchestra. If that doesn’t make it worth a visit, then what does! Owned by the City of London and part of a large housing complex built in regeneration after the Second World War. The Barbican is Brutalist in its architecture and an integral part of the history of London.

The Barbican presents the most diverse range of visual and creative arts in the whole city, with theatre, art, dance, film and music, it caters to everybody’s tastes. It regularly hosts music concerts with both classical and contemporary orchestras. These are advertised in advance on the Barbican website. Upcoming events include a version of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with a full live orchestra, a perfect Christmas treat.

Other exhibitions include a retrospective photography exhibition on the 1960s and 70s for those who enjoy a little nostalgia. If you fancy something more hands-on, one of the upcoming Barbican workshops is in jewellery making. With experts in this field, this is bound to be a fascinating and informative event. The centre also works closely with children and school groups, with a public programme of events that visitors of any age can participate in.
