The Barbican turned 25 on Saturday 3 March 2007. To mark its first quarter century, the Centre celebrated with:
* 25 landmark events all through 2007, which embraced all the art forms and embody the heart and spirit of the arts programme.
* A marathon fortnight of events during February, with over 100 art, film, dance, music, theatre and education events.
* A new look following the major £35 million refurbishment of the foyers, public spaces and all the venues. The Barbican now has a new front door.
* The 25th birthday book, a bold and provocative look at the last 25 years.
