Underbelly FestivalThe unrivalled Underbelly Festival presents over 70 shows for five months of comedy, cabaret and children's shows. In a temporary theatre on the South Bank, between the Southbank Centre and London Eye - surrounded by street food and one of London's biggest outdoor bars - you'll find London's largest programme of affordable circus, cabaret and fringe theatre. This year's programme has yet to be announced but you can expect a month long residency by a headline act - last year, Gravity & Other Myths brought their stripped back circus show to the South Bank. Acts vary from debauched cabaret and drag extravaganzas to a live podcasts. There are shows for children with stage adaptations of favourite picture books like Elmer The Patchwork Elephant and The Gruffalo with a big Family Fest running throughout the Easter holidays.

About Underbelly Festival

Each summer, from April to September, a Speigeltent (from the Dutch for 'mirror tent') is set up in the shadow of the Southbank Centre, to host the wierd and wonderful Udderbelly Festival circus and cabaret acts. Adjacent to the river Thames, the Speigeltent is part of a site which includes fairground rides, bars and a programme of international cabaret, music and fringe theatre.
