Information for Deaf and Disabled Visitors

The Barbican Centre is committed to promoting equality by treating people fairly and with respect and by taking steps to address any inequalities in the services and facilities we offer. We believe that providing the best access possible is an essential component of our status as a world class arts and conference venue. We continue to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving accessibility by going beyond equality law and achieving best practice.
