Al fresco venues Hay’s Galleria, Cotton’s Centre Pier and Potters Fields Park are the south of the river stars this August as London Bridge Live Arts (launched last year for the duration of the Olympics) once again takes center stage.
The jam-packed programme kicks off this week with French Tales, an exploration of the continental language through games, music and drama, troubadour-clown act Lady Stoneheart, and Chinese-puzzle-dancers SKADooSH (you’ll have to head along to see what that entails as we’re not even sure).
Southwark wanderers had better listen out too, as soulful warbler Roberta de Francia and London Underground music-maker Busker Rhymes will be singing their hearts out. The London Swing Society will also be dancing away to Jazz from throughout the ages, and visitors are invited to join in.
Curated by arts charity Ideas Tap, the Live Arts band of vibrant entertainers have plenty up their sleeves. Expect live painting, interactive theatre, hula-hoop acts and loads more. Kitty Knowles
Performances will be pleasing crowds from 12-4pm at Hay’s Galleria, the Cotton’s Centre Pier and Potters Fields Park. Have a peek here to keep up with the lineup.
