The Southbank Centre site has a history of street culture that dates back to the 1970s when skateboarders first began to congregate here. The skate park – situated underneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall – has been an iconic site for boarders ever since. While dancers routinely practice in the Festival Hall foyers, the concrete buildings and walkways that surround the site have become a magnet for all kinds of street culture in recent years.
