Make an artistic hire booking

Thank you for your interest in artistic hire at Southbank Centre.
Please note that because of the closure of the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room for refurbishment, availability in our venues can be extremely limited.

These venues will be closed September 2015 until Spring 2018. In order to consider any request to hire one of our halls, we require the following information to be supplied to us.

A member of the team will get back to you within 3-5 working days.

Promoter Experience

Please provide details on who the Promoter is and their experience of live event promotion, especially in other major London venues.
We must ensure that anyone hiring one of our halls has sufficient experience of live event promotion in the highly competitive London market. Please be advised that if we were ultimately able to offer a date to hire, it would be subject to a satisfactory credit check of the Promoter. The scale of deposit required from a promoter will vary from a minimum of 30% of the hire fee up to 100% of the hire fee depending upon the credit check result. Any unsatisfactory credit check result may preclude Southbank Centre from working with the Promoter.

We require evidence that the project can reasonably attract an audience commensurate to the auditorium capacity – this could be achieved either through evidence that the artist has previously attracted audiences of this size in other London venues or through evidence of the commitment to support the concert with the publicity and marketing plans which will maximise exposure and impact for the event.
