Queen Elizabeth Hall reopened in April 2018 following almost three years of renovations with world-class, environmentally-improved new facilities for audiences and artists. The building is also home to Purcell Room—a smaller, more intimate space.
The building was originally opened in March 1967 by Her Majesty the Queen. Restoration has been made possible through generous support from Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and through Southbank Centre friends, trusts and foundations supporting the Let The Light In campaign.
Led by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios), the design focused on refurbishing the auditoria, foyer and artists’ back of house facilities.
