Despite this being our smallest auditorium with a cosy capacity of 38 seats, you will not need to compromise on big-screen impact! All AV within the Studio is included as part of your hire fee, as is an in-house Technician and an Event Coordinator to ensure your event runs smoothly.

You can also brand your event to reflect your company colours through special lighting effects, we will work with you to make the space your own.

Events at the Studio can be booked with other inspirational social spaces within the BFI Southbank such as the Blue Room or the Riverfront restaurant and Balcony Bar, which provide the perfect venues for a pre- or post-event cocktail or reception.

The high service standards of our professional and dedicated events crew are part of the reason why clients repeatedly rebook our spaces - no matter what the format, we will go the extra mile to help you stage a successful and memorable event.

Over the years, we have welcomed leading corporate, tech, automotive and entertainment brands who consider the BFI Southbank to have the perfect atmospheric setting to stage a unique event.
