Until the 2nd of August catch Scotch & Soda’s raucous, world-class mix of circus, dance and original music. London Wonderground’s decadent Spiegeltent will host this glamorous evening of debauched and deadly fun jam-packed with jaw-dropping lunacy, incredible feats and live beats.
London Wonderground is the brainchild of Underbelly and Southbank Centre. A dazzling playground for all, London Wonderground is a spectacular slice of circus in the centre of London. Back for a fourth year, the festival is renowned for hosting the best circus and cabaret from across the world in an enchanting riverside venue, complete with a magnificent 1920s Spiegeltent and various rides and attractions. London Wonderground is part of Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love this summer.
A dusty desert bar. A chance encounter. A spectacular clash of spellbinding misfits, Scotch & Soda is a guaranteed whiskey-soaked evening of breathtaking feats, blinding charm and beatnik soul. Scotch & Soda features gravity-defying circus from some of Australia’s finest acrobats with previous appearances including Cantina, La Clique, Cirque and Tom Tom Crew, and music from the renowned Crusty Suitcase Band. Scotch & Soda is the first time that all of these artists have formally come together to present this brand new production.
Ed Bartlam and Charlie Wood, Directors of Underbelly, said: “We can scarcely believe that this will be Udderbelly’s 7th year at Southbank Centre and our 4th year with London Wonderground. We created these festivals with the very clear ambition of wanting to give Londoners an affordable and eclectic mix of fabulous live entertainment but within a true festival environment in the very heart of London. We’re very excited about this year’s festivals and can’t wait to get the Cow’s legs up in the air and the mirrors polished on that Spiegeltent again.”
