"Glass pavilion in the sky will transform the Cinderella Southbank." (Whereas 'leisure' at Brent Cross will be an out-of-town - instead of high street - new cinema)

"The Southbank Centre is to undergo a radical £120 million transformation that includes a new glass pavilion in the sky, it was announced today.

"The Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery are to be re-named the Festival Wing and closed for up to three years while the revamp takes place. But the end result will be new space for performances, exhibitions and socialising, carved out of reclaimed and forgotten corridors and plant works on the 21-acre site.

"The project will bring the Sixties buildings up to the standard of the slightly older Royal Festival Hall, which underwent a renovation at similar cost six years ago."
