With its superb technical resources, intelligent design and excellent acoustics, Barbican Hall is justifiably acknowledged as one of the country's finest auditoriums.

The Hall's breadth of facilities and size, seating from 500 to 1943 people, make it the ultimate venue for larger conferences. It offers an intimate, yet persuasive, atmosphere with excellent sight lines, tiered seating and air conditioning ensuring comfort whilst keeping audiences involved and alert. Its flexible configuration makes the Hall ideal for corporate conferences, AGM's and product launches.
