Barbican closes to safeguard public health - make a donation

THE Barbican is temporarily closed until further notice due to new UK Government advice on Coronavirus/Covid-19. The safety of its staff and audiences is its most important consideration, so it has taken the decision to fully close the building during this period.

The Barbican is sorry to the artists and audiences affected and recognises the significant impact that this closure will have on all those it works with or that are due to attend its events.

Please keep checking this page for the latest information on refunds for cancelled events. As the venue is having to cancel or postpone a large number of events, please be patient and try to avoid contacting the box office at this stage. Full information will be provided as soon as possible.

The Barbican relies on box office income and donations to deliver its programme, pay staff and artists and to run the building. The current situation presents a very significant financial challenge, alongside the artists and organisations it works with, so, if you’re able, please consider making a donation to help support future work.
