London WondergroundHaving made its first appearance last year, bringing Coney Island-style attractions and cabaret performed in a Speigeltent in the shadow of the Southbank Centre, the London Wonderground makes a welcome return in May 2013. 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, the team behind last year's headline show Cantina return with another spellbinding show, Limbo. Further performers include Shclomo, beat boxing from a record breaking champion; The Tiger Lillies, Grammy-nominated, Olivier award-winning alternative cabaret performers; and House of Burlesque, a celebration of decadence, glamour and empowerment from Miss Tempest Rose.
