Udderbelly FestivalLook out for an upside-down purple cow as you're crossing over the Golden Jubilee footbridge to the Southbank Centre from the mid-April - failing that, just listen out for the belly laughs - and you'll find your way to London's funniest summer event. The colourful, comic, curvaceous cow marks the spot of the Udderbelly - a two-month festival of comedy, cabaret and theatre from around the globe. There's a huge variety of entertainment taking place both in and outside the bulbous bovine - which also appears at the Edinburgh Festival - with something going on almost every night. Confirmed acts for 2014 include Omid Djalili, Tony Law, Spank!, Festival of the Spoken Nerd, and The Showstoppers Improvised Musical who create a brand new musical from scratch at each performance of the show.

 

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
