Somerset House is a new kind of arts centre in the heart of London, designed for today’s audiences and creatives. Offering a diverse and dynamic public programme of contemporary arts and culture, we are also a home to a large community of creative businesses, artists and makers, including Somerset House Studios. One of the city’s most spectacular and well-loved spaces, we are a place where art and culture is imagined, made and experienced by our 3 million visitors every year. Our year-round cultural programme spans the contemporary arts in all its forms including events and exhibitions with recent highlights including PJ Harvey’s Recording in Progress, Big Bang Data, Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence, Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick, Björk Digital, Malick Sidibé: The Eye of Modern Mali and Utopia 2016: a Year of Imagination and Possibility. From one-person start-ups to successful creative businesses, Somerset House is home to possibly the largest creative community in London. Our residents include 100 organisations from the arts and creative industries: Courtauld Gallery and Institute, King’s College London Cultural Institute, British Fashion Council, Clore Leadership Programme, Dance Umbrella, Fuel Theatre, Improbable, Music for Youth, MOBO, National Youth Orchestra, Sorrell Foundation, plus others ranging from advertising, branding, PR agencies and film production, to social enterprise and business support organisations.
