The Royal Festival Hall is part of the Southbank Centre. It was built in 1951 for the Festival of Britain and is the first post war building to have been given Grade 1 listed protection (in 1988). It was the venue for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960. It has always supported a variety of music, dance, literature and visual arts.
There are bars on levels 4 and 5 of the building and a Members Bar on level 6 with views over the river. There are a number of cafes and restaurants inside and around the building. The Hall seats 2,900 and the foyers are open to the public.
There is level access to the building and lifts to all levels. All its facilities are fully accessible. There are 8 spaces for wheelchair users in the auditorium.
The nearest tube stations are Waterloo and Embankment, which is just across the river. Parking can be found nearby in the Hayward Gallery or National Theatre car parks.
