Southbank's festival of circus and cabaret is back with a shiny new name and an even shinier new line-up

Southbank's biggest summer festivals, London Wonderground and Udderbelly, are teaming up in 2017 to create Underbelly Festival. Underbelly Festival will take place on the same Southbank spot, but will host a newly expanded line-up of the four Cs: cabaret, circus, comedy and children's theatre. Not to mention the food and drink stalls and fairground rides that make it an adult playground all summer long.

Udderbelly's famous giant purple cow tent will be shuffling off to pastures new, leaving room for a new space that will host events all summer long. Underbelly Festival's 2017 line-up includes mega-star comedians Al Murray, Sara Pascoe and Stephen K Amos, shows from circus companies Casus and Flip FabriQue, and a saucy new 'boylesque' show from Briefs.

Recently caught a performance of Casus: Driftwood at the Underbelly Festival on the Southbank. I've been to the festival for years, and each year it just gets better and better. A great place to pop along to when you want to do something fun and different after work. The performances are mostly guaranteed to be a great mix of fun, eclectic and captivating. I've never been disappointed so far!

We're spoilt for choice in London when it comes to our "piazzas" but there's something so quaintly charming about Underbelly that just makes you damn proud to be a Londoner. I didn't even go to see a ticketed show, just to meet friends for a drink and food, but from the moment of stepping into the enchanted forest welcome, to emerging in the pop-up's central square decorated with a vast array of food vendors and bars, it left a warm feeling in my heart to be amongst my people doing what Londoners do best. From the folks there to see a show, to the after-work drinkers, Underbelly is able to transport the mundane of everyday, and give you a break to let your hair down
