The Southbank Centre today announces a four-month reopening programme, Summer Reunion – providing opportunities for people to reconnect, reunite and enjoy a colourful, joyful celebration of art, culture and entertainment.
The packed programme features ballet, classical music, contemporary music, literature, poetry and visual art. The reopening of the Southbank Centre and Summer Reunion programme is made possible thanks to the repayable loan from the government’s Culture Recovery Fund.
On 30 April the popular weekly street food market returns, alongside riverside pop-ups.
