the barbican

The Barbican in London has announced plans for a £644,000 refurbishment of its Frobisher rooms and Level 4 of the center as part of a £2.2m development taking place throughout the facility this summer. 

The Frobisher refurbishment, which is slated for completion this September, is designed to create a stronger connection between the center’s main conference and meeting facilities and its arts spaces.

The overall Frobisher investment strategy includes relocating the reception desk, introducing art and performance related décor into the Level 4 public areas, and developing key spaces, such as the Auditorium 1 Foyer, into a lounge space. 

Additionally, the center plans to create a central hub area in the middle of the Crescent that can be flexible depending on the type and style of events being held in the vicinity.

The center will also replace conference and lounge furniture; undertake a general refurbishment of the Frobisher Rooms, including décor, flooring and AV upgrades; and replace the house and production lighting in Auditoriums 1 and 2. 

The Barbican is Europe’s largest combined conference and arts venue. Located in The City of London, it is capable of holding meetings from 10-2,000 delegates in its fully equipped concert hall, theatres, conference suites and boardrooms.
