More than 250 guests flocked to the Barbican yesterday for a night of celebration following the refurbishment of the Frobisher Rooms and Level 4 of the Centre. The refurbishment was part of a wider development during the summer and the Fabulously Barbican event ensured the new-look spaces were showcased to meetings and events professionals.
“We want to strengthen the connection between the Centre’s main conference and meeting facilities with its art spaces and the event certainly helped us showcase these developments, in particular the way the spaces flow together and create a seamless event experience,” commented Jackie Boughton, Head of Events at the Barbican. “The idea of our Fabulously Barbican evening was to give guests a real taste of what they could expect from hosting a meeting, conference or event at the Centre. It was a wonderful night and it was great to network with some of the industry’s finest professionals. The success of the evening certainly shows the Barbican is a much-loved venue and I’m very excited that these developments will offer even more to the events offering here.”
The Barbican provides a venue for corporate events, conferences, meetings and entertainment. The venue is capable of holding meetings from 10-2,000 delegates in rooms including a concert hall, theatres, a boardroom and conference suites that can accommodate 10-170 delegates and can be adjusted using sound proofed sliding partitions.
