Rare opportunity to follow in stars footsteps at the Barbican
The rare opportunity to utilise Barbican Theatre, which is currently hosting Lyndsey Turner’s production of ‘Hamlet’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch, has become available for commercial events to take over the space in Spring 2016.
“It is very rare that an opportunity to use the Theatre for a commercial event comes about,” said Jackie Boughton, Head of Sales at Barbican Business Events. “Barbican Theatre is always in use for outstanding productions so these dates offer a real chance to create something that will be memorable and fantastic. The Theatre space is extremely sought after and will give any event a unique feel.”
Barbican Theatre has acoustics that match the needs of international theatre and dance companies and offers the ideal setting in which to host events such as conferences, AGMs, presentations or award ceremonies. Seating 1,156 people, it is an intimate space with no seat located more than twenty metres from the stage and excellent sight lines for all delegates attending an event.
A private registration and catering area is also included in the hire of the Theatre. The available dates are 7th-11th March and 11th-16th April 2016.
“We fully expect that the opportunity to hold an event at Barbican Theatre will attract plenty of interest,” added Jackie. “If it’s good enough for the stars of stage and screen then I am sure it will be perfect for a business looking to achieve something quite special.”
