Southbank Centre's wide-ranging programme: classical world music, rock pop, jazz, dance, literature and the visual arts - attracts the most diverse audience of any UK venue.

Southbank Centre consists of the Royal Festival Hall (reopened after its two-year transformation), the Hayward Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall(containing the Purcell Room), and the Saison Poetry Library. It also manages the Arts Council Collection and organises the National Touring Exhibition programme in venues throughout the UK.
