The Barbican is a Grade II listed building and is one of London’s best examples of Brutalist architecture.
The Barbican houses two theatres that showcase international work, dance and performance by auteurs, leading companies and emerging artists that challenge the idea of what theatre can be. The Main Theatre at has capacity of 1156 and divided over four levels while The Pit is a small 164 seat studio theatre that champions emerging companies and artists.
The Barbican offers much more than theatre though. It also houses two art galleries, three cinemas, a concert hall, a tropical conservatory, a library, three restaurants, conference facilities and a lakeside terrace.
