Enjoy a fun-packed festival of live acts beneath a giant upside-down purple cow, as the Southbank Centre’s Udderbelly Festival returns to the banks of the Thames.
The vibrant season of events sees a wide range of comedy, circus, music and all manner of novelty and variety acts over the early weeks of the summer.
Highlights this year include Circus Maximus, one of the nation’s leading circus competitions, where daring and inventive acts battle it out for audience applause and votes. This joins Austentatious: An Improvised Jane Austen Novel, a hilariously wacky show performed in regency costume by a cast of rising stars; while Andrew Maxwell (star of hit TV show Mock the Week) keeps the laughter going with his witty take on life in the capital.
Add this line-up to a comedy club for kids to practice their jokes, child-friendly shows and outdoor bars, and there’s never a dull moment while the purple cow is in town.
