More than 250 guests headed to The Barbican for a showcase of its recent refurbishments.

The Fabulously Barbican event was the first chance for meetings and events professionals to get a closer look at the newly-renovated Frobisher rooms and Level 4 of the centre. Those attending the event included the likes of BBC, Vodafone, HBAA and Capita.

Jackie Boughton, head of events at the Barbican, said: “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.

“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 event started with drinks on the Conservatory Terrace on Level 4, before guests enjoyed a showcase tour of the developments around the Frobisher Rooms. The tour finished in the Conservatory where guests enjoyed networking, canapes and champagne.

Edward Poland, co-founder of Hire Space, said: “The Barbican has always been a stunning venue but the refurbishment has added a real element of sophistication and we expect to return time and again with a variety of clients."
