Twelve years in and the More London Free Festival is again bringing an impressive line-up of events and performances to the concrete amphitheatre below the Mayor's leaning glass blob of an office on the South Bank. For 2014 the events are divided into five cultural categories, and the festival kicks off with a four-day street party (June 4-8) of Latin and Caribbean food and fun.

Free Fringe runs from June 4-20 and features lighthearted shows from Pantaloons Theatre Company and The Merry Opera Company's romantic comedy 'Kiss Me, Figaro!'. From June 23-July 6 an LED screen will show full Wimbledon coverage, and music is the focus from July 9-25, with regular lunchtime and evening performances. Gods and Monsters Theatre present The Ring Cycle Plays for the theatre contingent (August 6-31). The final focus is film, and from September 3-26 there's a schedule of free screenings, from the critically acclaimed ('Philomena', 'Life of Pi') to cult classics ('The Goonies', 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off').

All events are free and no booking is required, but we recommend you arrive early and bring a cushion. For full event details visit www.morelondon.com

Took my 7 & 10 yr old to see the 18:30 showing: utterly brilliant- loved that the actors came & chatted with the audience before the play started & we were then treated to v high quality drama & comedy, and even a moment of improv when all the children rushed on stage unexpectedly! Go see!

It was amazing. You don't pay for it. You can donate some money thou if you keen to do so. And about food, there is one Tesco, MS, Pret a manger, very near by. So you don't need to pay for expensive vegetables. :-)
