The Barbican is Europe’s largest multi-arts and conference venue presenting a diverse range of art, music, theatre, dance, film and education events. It is also home to the London Symphony Orchestra.

The heart of the Barbican’s banqueting facility, the spectacular Conservatory, is quite spectacular. This lush, tropical oasis is home to finches, quails, exotic fish and over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees.

Overlooking this magical setting, and with views of St. Giles Cripplegate and the fountains of the Lakeside Terrace, is the banqueting suite, the Garden Room. An elegant dining area which can be sub-divided for smaller parties, the Garden Room is stylishly decorated with eucalyptus burr panelling embellished with bronze and silvered glass.

Together with the Conservatory Terrace high up in the glass roof of the Centre, they form a stunning backdrop for cocktail receptions, buffets and formal banquets. The menus too, are equally as inspiring. Much thought, care and imagination goes in to the creation of the dishes we serve and, of course, only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. And, whatever the size of the event, you can count on attention to detail and impeccable service.

The renowned Barbican Hall plays host to events ranging from university graduations to AGM’s as well as international orchestras and performers and can accommodate up to 1943 guests. For slightly more compact events, Barbican Theatre, with its excellent acoustics and production facilities, makes an ideal venue for product launches and seminars.

The Barbican also offers a range of conference facilities for smaller events ranging in capacity from 10 to 280 delegates. Seating from 153 to 280 delegates, the three Barbican cinemas are well-appointed comfortable auditoriums suitable for the most sophisticated presentation. In addition, seven smaller conference suites can be used for board meetings or used as syndicate spaces for larger events.

What Our Clients Say

I have used ‘Function Fixers’ now on many occasions and they are my go-to for literally any event I need help with organising. Heather is an absolute superstar who is always there to help and goes above and beyond to find me the perfect venue and make sure it is a smooth transition from start to finish.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful to have found the company…absolute life and time savers, and certainly ‘fixers’!!

Really impressed at the speed and efficiency of this service. I gave Chen a really tricky brief and they smashed it out the park and really helped my team.

I need to find a venue large enough to host a group for Easter Retreat. We was beginning to worry that we would not be able to host it in England which would have meant taking it to America or Canada. However we where saved by the Bell by Heather from function fixers, she was the groups shining armer in this case. Heather was able to come up with three or four options that was large enough to host the group also flexible to the groups need. Heather was able to do all the stressful part of negotiations with the venues right to the end and all our group did was to agree with the venue on the date the booking payment was needed We are extremely grateful for all that Heather did for us and would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a venue for any occasion so leaving yourselves stress free to enjoy your day. Thank you Heather

I've been working with Carrie for the past 2-3 months to finalise a venue for a 250pax conference we are hosting next year. She was exceptional in putting forward appropriate suggestions and even better at managing our changing requests and circumstances. Nothing was too much trouble. We have just signed on a venue and we are delighted. Highly recommend!
