In Photos: Barbican OpenFest 2018

Tuesday 20 March 2018

On 17 & 18 March, we invited visitors to a packed weekend of everything we do best, from art exhibitions, music and dance, to open rehearsals, showcases and workshops in and around the Centre.

From performances and events to pop-up workshops and activities for all ages, we share photos of some of the highlights.

Barbican OpenFest was a Culture Mile event in collaboration with The City of London Corporation, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London Symphony Orchestra and the Museum of London. Culture Mile is a destination for culture and creativity in the heart of London’s financial district, bringing the area to life with imaginative collaborations and exciting events.
