Royal Festival Hall opened in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain. The Grade I listed Royal Festival Hall is one of the world’s leading performance venues, located on the banks of the River Thames at the heart of Southbank Centre.

As well as a 2,500 capacity auditorium, the Royal Festival Hall is also where you'll find The Clore Ballroom, The Poetry Library, Spirit Level (including Blue, White and Yellow Rooms), Southbank Centre Shop, Riverside Terrace Cafe, Central Bar and Skylon Restaurant.

The Royal Festival Hall offers a fantastic central location, excellent facilities, a high standard of catering and an auditorium where every seat offers a clear and uninterrupted view of the proceedings. The state-of-the-art sound, lighting and audio-visual facilities mean that we are able to offer an excellent quality DVD service for those who wish to purchase a memento of their day.
