London Wonderground


This summer-long pop-up cabaret festival offers an embarrassment of riches. International performers include sensational chanteuses Meow Meow, who blends tenderness, satire and seat-of-the-pants showmanship, and the circus spectacular Limbo. Come July, the neighbouring Udderbelly – the purple inflatable cow crammed with comedy – heads north to Edinburgh and the Wonderground expands to become a whole Coney Island-themed playground environment of sideshows, bandstands, food stalls, roving performers and barnyard oddities. ‘It’ll be like entering a new world,’ promises Ed Bartlam, co-director of Underbelly, who are creating the Wonderground with the Southbank Centre. We think he might be right.

LIMBO is a must see event in summertime.  I've been twice so far, and would happily go again.  I've also sent numerous first dates there, and never heard a bad word after!

Essentially you end up with the best acrobats in the world, performing so close, it's like they're in your living room.  The music is incredible too! If they run it again in 2015, GO GO GO!!!
