The Barbican exists to inspire people to discover and love the arts. We innovate with outstanding artists and performers to create an international programme that crosses art forms, investing in the artists of today and tomorrow.

A world-class arts and learning organisation, the Barbican pushes the boundaries of all major art forms including dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts. Over 1.1 million people attend Barbican events every year alongside hundreds of artists and performers from across the globe, while our creative learning programme underpins everything we do.

The City of London Corporation is the owner, founder and principal funder of the Barbican Centre.
