Barbican Arts Centre
Situated in the heart of the City of London, UK, in the Barbican Estate, it contains a major concert hall, a theatre, a public library and an art gallery. There are also cinemas, a small theatre, informal performance spaces, restaurants and conference and exhibition facilities. Outside, its main focal point is the lake and its neighbouring terrace. The fly tower of the theatre has been surrounded by glass and made into a spectacular high-level conservatory.
The centre stages a wide range of performances by visiting theatre and dance companies.
The centre stands next to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
