Arguably the leading arts venue in the UK, the Southbank Centre, comprising five main venues – Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, the Hayward Gallery and the Saison Poetry Library – occupies a 21-acre site on the banks of the Thames. Originally created in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, over the decades the institution has flourished to become a thriving festival site, hosting music, dance, art, spoken word and performance events. The venue not only supports four resident orchestras, 14 artists in residence and over 100 more artistic organisations, it also manages the Art Council Collection and curates the Hayward Touring Exhibition which visits venues across the country.
