About Underbelly Festival

Underbelly fans! Summer on the Southbank just got BIGGER! 

We've merged our two hugely popular London festivals, Udderbelly Festival and London Wonderground, into one, wham bam, monster festival of affordable live entertainment... UNDERBELLY FESTIVAL

Open until the end of September, Underbelly Festival brings the best in live circus, comedy, cabaret and family entertainment to the heart of London. It's everything that Udderbelly Festival and London Wonderground were... and more. We've got an amazing line-up of shows in an amazing city-centre, pop-up festival world. You can enjoy international street food, after work drinks in one of London's largest outdoor bars and a true festival atmosphere on the banks of the Thames. 

Our shows are short (usually only an hour long), sharp and very sweet. And the vast majority of tickets are under £20 making Underbelly Festival your affordable entertainment destination in London this summer. 

Eat, drink, watch and be merry this summer... 

Come and spend your summer with us!
