Limbo, Al Murray, Frisky & Mannish + more for the return of LONDON WONDERGROUND at Southbank Centre from May


Underbelly and Southbank Centre announce 
the return of the award-winning 
London Wonderground 
at Southbank Centre festival


Roll up! Roll up! for the return of the festival that took London by storm last year, London Wonderground at Southbank Centre – a summer long celebration of the best cabaret, circus and sideshows that the world has to offer. Built around a magnificent 1920's Spiegeltent, London Wonderground last year captured the heart and the imagination of London, attracted 1 million visitors to the site and recently scooped the Best Newcomer Award at the London Cabaret Awards. A little bit of Coney Island is returning to 21st century London once again. Prepare for the unexpected.

London Wonderground is part of Southbank Centre’s Festival of Neighbourhood with MasterCard this summer from 4 May to 8 September. Following on from the recent announcement of LIMBO, the brand new show of scintillating circus and wondrous illusion from the creators of last year's smash hit Cantina, Underbelly and Southbank Centre are delighted today to announce a selection of treats that await you in this years programme. Tickets for these shows are on sale now, with further shows to be announced soon.

London Wonderground at Southbank Centre will run
from 6 May - 29 September 2013

Highlights this year include:

·    LIMBO - The latest thrilling production from the creators of Cantina, and the headline show of the 2013 season.
Exotic encounters unfold between a mystical coterie of highly skilled international performers. Featuring circus, magic, spectacle and dance, this is an unforgettable celebration of otherworldly proportions.
·    Al Murray: The Pub Landlord's Southbank Saloon - The nation’s favourite pub philosopher turns pop-up publican, bringing his unique satirical genius to London Wonderground. With a host of special guests each night, comedy, variety and music are all on tap in this headline show. The ringmaster of rabble-rousing invites you to his jumped-up tent saloon for three nights only!
·    The Horne Section - The UK’s finest musicians thrown together with the world’s most exciting comics. This is a truly unique and heady mix of spontaneous stand-up, spectacular performance and outlandish musical talent, hot on the rhythmic heels of their very own BBC Radio 4 series and three years of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
·    Frisky & Mannish - To celebrate an amazing five years together, F&M are bringing back exclusive, one-off performances of each of their hit, sell-out Edinburgh shows: School of Pop, The College Years and Pop Centre Plus. It's your last chance to get a thorough pop education. Do not miss out or you may never understand Rihanna.
·    Tongue Fu - The UK’s sharpest poets, storytellers and comedians perform with jaw-dropping improvised soundtracks and films from the genre hopping Tongue Fu Band and East London design studio CR&D.  One of London’s liveliest and largest
spoken word shows, it is a riotous experiment in live literature, music, film and improvisation.

Further shows in the season will be announced in March

·    London Wonderground is part of Southbank Centre’s Festival of Neighbourhood with MasterCard this summer from 4 May to 8 September. The festival will celebrate neighbourhood in all its meanings and explore what it is to have and be a neighbour. Communities who live close by and partners from across the UK and abroad will participate in creating the festival – from nearby Elephant and Castle in South London to young people from Pelhourino in Salvador, Brazil – with a diverse programme of events including poetry, discussion, visual arts, performance and art installations across Southbank Centre’s 21-acre site.
