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.

Wonderground is a magical place! A bar on a Merry-go-round, loads of delicious street food trucks, plenty of seats incuding beach chairs: this is the perfect spot for an impromptu meet up with friends. One of the best things about it is the the entrance alley, fairy-lights hanging over your head from tree to tree: truly beautiful. BUT, if this has already convinced you, you might faint when you read that: a 60-metre high Star Flyer! It won't bring out your pretty side, as you can see on the photo, but man, the fun you're going to have flying over London! #TOTastemaker

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!!!
