Milton Court is London’s latest performance venue. The brand new building, hosting a 608-seat concert hall and 227-seat state-of-the-art theatre, sits next to the Barbican Centre on Silk Street and opens on September 26.

It will principally be used by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, but also by the Barbican’s two new associate ensembles – the Academy of Ancient Music and Britten Sinfonia.

Does this signal an emerging ‘Barbican Cultural Quarter’, comprising the Barbican Centre, Milton Court and the Guildhall School Theatre on Silk Street, the Barbican’s two new cinemas on Beech Street, and LSO St Luke’s on Old Street? Throw in the daily food market on Whitecross Street – of course it does.

Find out what’s on at the Barbican Centre, Silk Street, EC2Y 8DS.
