The Southbank Centre has closed of all its venues until 30 June following the latest government advice relating to coronavirus and social distancing.

Southbank Centre will be in touch with all ticket holders in early May with information on how tickets can be transferred to the new dates. All ticket holders for other planned events this Spring will receive information of rescheduled dates, credit vouchers, donations and refunds.

Grace Jones said: “Regretfully my Meltdown festival this year must be rescheduled to June 2021 due to the coronavirus. I am gravely disappointed, but also delighted to be working with the amazing Southbank Centre team who have been able to successfully move the festival dates, along with all of our incredible line-up. Stay safe, stay home and see you next year.”
