A weekend of inspiring art and entertainment
We welcome you to a packed weekend of everything we do best, from art exhibitions, music and dance, to free tours, open rehearsals, showcases and workshops in and around the Centre.
A Culture Mile event
Can the arts change the world? How does the role of artists and the arts help bring about change? How does culture borrow from society – and vice versa? We look ahead at some of the highlights from our 2018 annual theme
Watch: Big Barbican Workshop
We go behind the scenes of this year's Big Barbican Workshop as students explore all the art forms that the Barbican has to offer, from art, drama, movement, music to spoken word.
Our shows, their voices... We hear from from our Young Reviewers as they explore our programme, develop their skills as arts critics and learn how to film and edit video.
