LONDON’S LARGEST CULTURAL VENUE
“Where people perform at their best!”
The Barbican is London and Europe’s largest multi-arts venue, showcasing the latest art, film, music, theatre, dance and education under one creative roof.
The centre offers unrivalled choice, with its walls encompassing facilities for dancing, concerts, theatre, public screenings, exhibition halls, two art galleries and a unique tropical plant conservatory: a secret garden oasis within the City of London.
The Barbican is rightly considered to be the beating heart of the City; a place of stimulation, adventure and refreshment reaching out beyond the confines of its walls to inspire those within the Square Mile and beyond.

With his avant-garde fashion creations and cutting-edge designs, Gaultier has shaped the look of fashion over the last 35 years. His reputation for witty and daring designs and a ceaseless interest in society, identity and a beauty borne of difference has earned him a place in fashion history.
