As Europe’s largest multi-arts venue, entertaining is something the Barbican does rather well. Since 1982, it has sustained an amazingly diverse & universally acclaimed repertoire of theatre, concerts & dance performances, as well as film screenings & visual art exhibitions. The opportunity to see these outstanding presentations, combined with excellent banqueting facilities, makes it an inspiring venue for corporate hospitality. Guests can, for instance, be treated to a private art gallery viewing with Champagne & canapés, or a seated dinner in one of the banqueting suites ahead of a performance in the Barbican Theatre or Barbican Hall. It is also possible to arrange private screenings in one of the cinemas, preceded or followed by a drinks reception or meal. The Conservatory, which contains over 2,000 species of tropical plants & trees, & the elevated Conservatory Terrace are particularly striking spaces for entertaining.
