The Barbican is a multi-disciplinary cultural complex; a venue for art, theatre, dance, film and music that explores the most palatable areas of the avant garde and the edgier end of the mainstream. It dates back to the 1960s, in Britain an era of new ideas and youthful zest. The Barbican today is still an architectural experience to behold, and has managed to maintain its identity as a must-visit venue for new ideas and cultural entertainment.
Its events are ambitious in scale and challenging enough to satisfy the most committed of culture vultures while often enjoying blockbuster status. A world-class venue that has lost none of its spirit of 1960s artistic vision.
