London WondergroundThe splendid London Wonderground Spiegeltent returns for a fourth year, bringing Coney Island-style attractions and cabaret performed in the shadow of the Southbank Centre. Transforming the riverside site into an amusement ground, it entices visitors in with fairground rides, circus shows and a programme of international cabaret, music and fringe theatre. In its inaugural year the festival drew over 800,000 visitors (including Madonna and 15 members of her entourage), and presented 277 different performances from 46 different acts. This year's line-up includes daredevil acrobats Scotch & Soda, a brand new show from the Black Cat Cabaret and the larger-than-life Briefs. Familiar faces taking to the stage include Al Murray, Dusty Limits and Schlomo.
