The Barbican centre

Set in one of the most Brutalist buildings in the world the Barbican has corporate event spaces that can be hired for your event.

Our spaces are great for conferences, AGMs, photoshoots, product launches, meetings, receptions and weddings. Bringing your event to us helps supports our arts and learning activities.

We’re committed to creating a better future for everyone by reducing our impact on the environment.

The spectacular Conservatory is a joy to discover, a hidden tropical oasis in the heart of the city.

Our Conservatory is a versatile and unique space within the City of London. Alongside the Garden Room, it can accommodate up to 300 people for a standing reception. Coloured lighting has been incorporated into the planting, creating a stunning environment for parties held after dusk.

Biodiversity at the Barbican

Our iconic sustainable Conservatory is home to exotic fish, terrapins and over 1,500 species of temperate plants and trees, some of which are rare and endangered in their native habitat. Two of our three pools accommodate koi, ghost, and grass carp from Japan and America, as well as other cold-water fish, while our smaller pool provides a safe haven for terrapins. The Conservatory doesn’t just serve as a green oasis and backdrop for numerous events, but also allows visitors to learn about biodiversity and plants that are rare and endangered in their native habitat.

The Barbican opens out onto a lakeside area that provides a habitat for a variety of flora and fauna including fish, coots, mallards, herons and moorhens. We work closely with our surrounding community to maintain this unique environment.

A few things we’ve done recently include installing a greater diversity of plants across the outside spaces, especially pollinator friendly ones to help boost the numbers of pollinators especially native ones; using natural fertilizers, where possible; as well as housing two small bee colonies and installing bug hotels to encourage pollinating insects.
