Barbican Theatre Seat Prices

Book tickets for productions at the Barbican Theatre.

The Barbican Centre opened in 1982 and contains a variety of arts, exhibition and concert spaces as well as its own theatre. The Barbican Theatre holds around 1160 seats spread over four levels; the Stalls, Circle, Upper Circle and Balcony. The theatre is a modern building compared to many other London theatre venues which means that it is relatively practical in terms of layout and viewing sight-lines  Generally speaking the centre of the Stalls and the Circle are the best places to sit, but are often the most costly. Cheaper seats can be found in the Upper Circle and Balcony. Prices of seats vary with each show at the Barbican, however I have created a seating and price rough guide below.
