Time Out says
The NT’s bringing the fun this summer with weekends of free outdoor performance
Fill yer boots with free live music, dance and theatre at the National Theatre’s free outdoor mini-festival weekends, which are back for Summer 2019 with a revamped line-up. River Stage takes over a dedicated spot on Southbank outside the theatre, offering crowds the chance to discover new performers, join in workshops, or just slump back in a deckchair and soak up the sun.
2019's River Stages programme features five weekends of events curated by East London drag hub The Glory (5-7th July), Arab cultural fest Shubbak (12-14th July), green champions National Park City Festival (19-21st July) and physical theatre masters Frantic Assembly (26-28th July). The season is capped off with a weekend curated by the National Theatre itself (2-4th August).
Turn up during the day to take part in dance workshops, watch theatre performances or bring the kids along for some crowd-pleasing kids' shows. Or save your energies for night-time, when DJs turn this bankside spot into one massive outdoor disco.
